Barrick (ABX) “begs enormous forgiveness” for the Veladero spill

Here’s the video of Juan Bautista Ordóñez, chief executive of Barrick Argentina, eating a large plate of crow and willing to say anything to get his mine back working. And yes, “begs enormous forgiveness” is a direct quote (translated).
But if ABX cared that much, how come the accident happened on September 8th and they tried to keep it secret, before finally getting in front whistle-blowers and reporting the accident on September 14th? On freakin’ whatsapp! You kind of get the feeling ABX suddenly realizes how how deep this particular tank of excrement is.
