Who will the Poliquins blame this time? AMLO? The cartels? Keith Piggott? The weather? Their projects repeatedly blow up at permitting stage all over Mexico, there must be a basic reason. Perhaps if they stopped treating Mexico like their own backyard and its people like serfs, they wouldn’t look so stupid this morning. Here’s a link to a NR:
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Almaden Minerals Ltd. (“Almaden” or “the Company”; TSX: AMM; NYSE American: AAU) has received notification (the “notification”) from the Mexican federal permitting authority, Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (“SEMARNAT”) that the Company’s initial environmental permit application (“MIA”) in respect of the Ixtaca project has not received approval. Almaden originally submitted the MIA in early 2019.
Here’s another link, to the 2019 post on this EIA permitting track that explained why it wouldn’t prosper. And here’s yet another, a right-to-reply post from AMM VP Corp Dev Don McDonald that now looks very stupid indeed. Also looking stupid is Gerardo Del Real, but that’s a private matter. Right, Gerardo?
