A federal court in Argentina has ruled that the country’s Supreme Court should take up a case related to a government request to suspend operations at Barrick Gold Corp’s Veladero mine, a court filing showed. Argentina’s environment ministry in April asked a federal court to suspend operations at Veladero until Barrick can guarantee there will be no environmental damages following a spill of cyanide solution in March, its third such incident in 18 months.
