BUENOS AIRES, June 15 A judge told a radio
station in the Argentina province of San Juan that he had lifted
a suspension on leaching operations at Canada-based Barrick Gold
Corp's Veladero mine on Thursday.
Judge Pablo Oritja said on Radio Light F.M he understood
Barrick had finished all required work following its third
cyanide spill in 18 months and had ordered an end to
restrictions put in place in late March. A Barrick spokesman in
Argentina said the company had not been formally notified.
