We have another very important confirmation that Barrick Gold is very serious about the re-start of its huge Pascua Lama mine building on the boarder of Argentina and Chile. All recent activity makes me think that somebody is more than likely is ready to support Barrick in this project with the capital and maybe even part of the Chinese market demand. All these developments are very positive for mining in Argentina and Lumina Copper advance demonstrates what potential assets re-pricing does really mean in this market environment. Reuters reports: "Barrick Strikes Deal With Pascua-Lama Mine Opponents."
