Barrick Gold (TSE:APX) Cortez Hill Mining

Barrick Gold

Barrick Gold (TSE:APX) is asking the U.S. District Court to hear oral arguments concerning being allowed to continue mining at the Cortez Hill project while awaiting the reviews of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management on potential environmental impact of mining in the area.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ordered more analysis of the effects on the environment, and shut down the mining operations at the time.

Barrick Cortez, a subsidiary of Barrick Gold, is asking for permission to mine on a limited basis while awaiting the outcome.
