Canada Asks Costa Rica to Respect the Crucitas Contract
The Canadian ambassador to Costa Rica has warned of the damage to the country's international reputation if the project is cancelled.
Monday, August 9, 2010
Neil Reeder, Canadian ambassador, indicated that his government can vouch for the environmental responsibility of Canadian mining companies. Despite the project being financed by the private sector, the Canadian government maintains a close interest in the project, he added.
A local court ruled to annul the concession previously granted to Industrias Infinito, and ordered the company to pay compensatory damages.
The open pit gold mine, property of Infinito Gold Ltd, is unable to operate due to renewed lawsuits from environmentalist groups.
The Costa Rican government predicts possible damages payable to Industrias Infinito if the gold mining contract is cancelled.
A Contentious-Administrative Tribunal issued a ruling temporarily preventing the mine from operating.
