My favourite bit of the meeting between Colossus Minerals (ex-CSI.to) and local miners

The government, the company and local ‘garimpeiro’ miners from the Coomigasp co-operative all got together this week to discuss the clusterfuck known as Serra Pelada. The best bit of the meeting made this report (translated):

The garimpeiro leaders also repeated their claim, while giving their words a tone of unquestionable truth, of the rumours that circulate intensely around Curionopolis which say Colossus has extracted a large quantity of gold from the mine and has sold  it illegally.” 

To the great surprise of nobody present, the company denied the accusations.
