Company Response

Response by Republic Metals

...The accusations and implications in the Report about RMC are factually inaccurate…The report relies on a small number of secondhand sources to make broad accusations and implications about RMC, disparaging a company that has done as much as any refinery operation in the world to eliminate the influence of illegal gold in the industry.  Neither the author of the report nor anyone from the Global Initiative contacted RMC before publishing the Report.  RMC could have corrected the inaccurate information in the Report had anyone contacted RMC to learn the truth.  We appreciate you allowing us to correct the defamatory accusations made in the Report about RMC.  Those accusations should not have been published in the first place and should never be published again...
