[PDF] Barrick's Dirty Secrets: Communities Worldwide Respond to Gold Mining's Impacts

This report...presents numerous examples in which Barrick's interests and the interests of the communities in which they operate are pitted directly against each other. From avoiding responsibility for the destructive environmental legacy of their projects...to employing police who violently suppress (and sometimes kill) mine critics, Barrick's power in these struggles creates a compelling case for intervention. [includes sections on "Water depletion, heavy metal pollution, cyanide"; human rights case studies on Peru & Tanzania, "Affected Communities" in Australia, Papua New Guinea, USA; Pascua Lama litigation (Chile/Argentina); "Barrick's legacy" in Canada & Philippines; "Community Victory" about Famatina (Argentina); "UN CERD Recommendation" (UN Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination); "Social Responsible Investment? (a critique)". Also refers to Placer Dome (now part of Barrick), Antamina, Homestake Mining (part of Barrick), Compañía Minera Nevada (part of Barrick)]
