Barrick Gold (ABX) says customs authorities in the Dominican Republic halted a shipment of gold from the recently-opened Pueblo Viejo mine. There is no explanation for the action, but Pueblo Viejo has been under pressure from local politicians seeking a more favorable contract. A local report suggests the Dominican president told customs to halt the shipment pending a new agreement.

    If true, add Dominican Republic to the list of Latin American countries that won't honor their legal contracts. We should embargo the cheap clothing made there!
