Guatemala’s Supreme Court on Thursday confirmed a preliminary decision to suspend two mining licenses belonging to the local unit of Canadian miner Tahoe Resources Inc, citing violation of indigenous people’s rights to be consulted.
The decision affects the Escobal mine, Tahoe’s flagship mine and one of the world’s largest silver mines, as well as the company’s smaller Juan Bosco unit.
