Tis rigor and not law

The state of play in the Argentina mining scene

This is a link to a very good overview piece in Spanish on the present day atmosphere in the world of mining, written by Daniel Bosque of Mining Press for a local San Juan province newspaper. Interesting snippets on the negotiations between locals and Barrick concerning Pascua Lama and Veladero, plus another section on the difference between real reality of Argentina mining and Jorge Mayoral’s version of reality. For example, here’s a snippet that got my sardonic grin on:
“”Mayoral te invita a su despacho con cualquier excusa, te saca una foto y
después manda una gacetilla en la que tu empresa aparece comprometida
con cientos de millones de dólares de inversión”, dicen los empresarios
resignados a cómo termina cada cafecito en Diagonal Sur”
Plenty more here. Good note.
