…in reverse order:
Third Place: “Fortuna Silver (FVI.to) (FSM) and its tailings dam breach“. It never ceases to amaze me how much gets reported about Canadian mining companies in LatAm that never makes it to English language reports or corporate news releases.
Second Place: “Cartier Resources (ECR.v) and the perils of announcing good news“. The only decent and original work on the blog this week.
First Place: “Regarding Continental Gold (CNL.to): A mining CEO writes in“. This CEO is right, anyone even remotely supporting CNL in its pathetic media campaign of denial is in an indefensible position. This company is everything that’s wrong about the mining industry and if the sector had any sort of moral compass, Ari Sussman (check how he screwed all and sundry at Colossus Gold) and all others at CNL would be ostracized forever. Instead, we have this company as main sponsor of an upcoming conference and influential media voices hardly batting an eyelid about the fact, taking the coin and readily supporting their corporate ethos.
Not a single loss at managerial or board level? Shame on you, mining industry! Shame on you, Newmont! How many more employees of this company have to die before the lessons are learned?
