Thursday, February 26, 2009
In an article in Laprensagrafica.com, Keny López Piche writes: “While Elías Antonio Saca is in the presidency, he will not authorize not even one permit (for mining exploration), not even environmental permits, that are previous to the ones granted by the Ministry of Economy,” declared the executive in a phone call made to a catholic radio station that at the time was transmitting a program regarding the consequences of mining in the country."
Pacific Rim interposed an arbitrage against El Salvador, process that started on June 15.
Community development associations in the region of El Dorado requested President Saca to reconsider his decision not to allow the exploration of precious metals.
On December 2009, the Commerce Ministry (Mici) received six new applications for exploring gold.
President Colom reiterated his government compromise of not granting mining permits.
