As Canadian mining companies seek to expand their presence in Central America, some Panama's indigenous peoples and peasant farmers worry that the mining could lead to deforestation, polluted water supply and the displacement of local communities—including the Ngobe people, Panama's largest indigenous group. The plan to unearth billions of dollars worth of precious metals is a boon for these Panamanian communities, according to the mining companies; they bring jobs and economic development to the developing countries. But for the peasant farmers and indigenous peoples, the rewards aren't worth sacrificing the environment. "The New Conquistadors" will air on CBC on June 18, 2012. This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Panama: The Canadian Conquistadors" (http://bit.ly/Kj4Qnm).

Haiti's new prime minister says the estimated $20 billion worth of minerals in Haiti's hills could help liberate it from dependency on foreign aid and rebuild from the devastating 2010 earthquake. But many worry the gold mines will be a boom for foreign investors and a bust for local Haitian communities. Democracy Now! speak to Jane Regan, lead author of "Gold Rush in Haiti: Who Will Get Rich?" The report by Haiti Grassroots Watch was published Wednesday in The Guardian and Haïti Liberté. "You've got a perfect storm brewing whereby you're looking at giant pit mines in the north, in a country that's already environmentally devastated, and giant pit mines being run by Canadian and American companies," Regan says. "Most of the money that's made and most of the gold that's dug up will go straight north." (Modified from the original excerpt provided by Democracy Now!) This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Haiti: Sitting on a Gold Mine" (http://bit.ly/LSCNtf).

When a small Vancouver mining company Nevsun struck gold in a remote corner of Africa, it started with so much promise. In remote Eritrea, Nevsun built a mine that was generating $700 million in profits in its first four years of operation. But it was also generating a lot of controversy – because Nevsun was partnered with a brutal dictatorship that runs the country and controls 40% of the mine. That has led to allegations by the UN and Human Rights Watch that the regime has used conscripted military labour in the mine. The Eritrea government has also been accused of funneling arms to the terrorist group al-Shabaab. Nevsun denies the allegations of human rights abuses and insists it is a “template for responsible international business.” What is the price of doing business with a dictator? Mark Kelley investigates. For more on the fifth estate : http://www.cbc.ca/fifth Follow us on Twitter : http://www.twitter.com/cbcfifth Like us on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/thefifthestate

Canada Hailed as Mining Capital of the World by Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver Frank Giorno www.mininglifeonline.net Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Joe Oliver, speaking at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention outlined the Harper government's actions in support of the mining industry in Canada and underscore its commitment to foster a strong mineral and mining sector. Minister Oliver called Canada one of the most attractive countries in the world for business and investment and referred to Canada as the mining capital of the world. "Mining creates jobs, growth, and long-term prosperity across the country," Oliver told the PDAC audience, "That is why our Government is such a strong supporter of this industry. Together, we will ensure that Canada remains the mining capital of the world -- now and in the future." Federal Government Actions In Support of Mining The Minister pointed to the following actions to highlight what the Harper government has done to strengthen and grow the mining industry: • the Government's plan for Responsible Resource Development, ensuring world-class environmental protection while providing certainty for investors; • a $100 million commitment over the next seven years for the Geo-Mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) Plan, helping exploration companies find deposits and create jobs; • extending the Mineral Exploration Tax Credit in Economic Action Plan 2014, which has helped junior exploration companies raise $5 billion in capital; • and pursuing an aggressive international free trade agenda, including the conclusion of a comprehensive free trade deal with the European Union -- the largest economy in the world

Wide of people sitting outside of embassy STORYLINE: Over two-hundred Mexican miners and their supporters blocked the entrances to the Canadian Embassy in Mexico City on Wednesday, to protest against plans to build a mine on what is considered to be a national landmark. Hundreds of people protested against Minera San Javier, which is a subsidiary of Canadian company Metallica Resources Inc, from operating in the Cerro de San Pedro. Protestors fear the mine would not only disturb a part of the country's history, they are also concerned about the residents of San Luis Potosi, which is approximately three hours from Mexico City. "This is a project that will contaminate the lives of millions of residents there (referring to the the residents of San Luis Potosi)," said Sergio Soriano Serrano, who is the leader of the Pro-San Luis Ecologico. He said that Minera San Javier would use brutal methods of exploitation on the land. "The only thing it is going to do after seven or eight years of mining is leave us with a desert and a city polluted on all sides," added Serrano. Leaders of the protest circulated a letter addressed to C. Gaetan Lavertu, the Canadian Ambassador in Mexico City. In it, the miners ask the diplomat to intervene in this matter so that the Canadian company stops its project. Serrano said the group had sent a letter to the embassy asking: "If Canada has outlawed this kind of mining exploration that this company wants to do, why should they do it here?" Although the protest was peaceful, dozens of Mexican police officers were at the scene.

Civil society along with communities from Canada to Argentina conducted coordinated actions including rallies, demonstrations, community radio coverage, letter writing campaigns and other alternative and imaginative actions of protest in front of mining corporate offices and Canadian embassies across the Americas. WHY CANADA? • 60% of the world's publicly traded mining companies are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. These corporations account for over 3200 exploitation projects in over 100 countries. Canada is the largest stakeholder in the resource extraction industry in the Americas accounting for 37% of the total investment. • Canadian financial markets in Toronto and Vancouver are the world's largest source of equity capital for mining companies undertaking exploration and development. • Canadian-based mining operations have deeply impacted territories, communities, and life. Resource exploration and exploitation activities have caused displacement, widespread destruction of livelihoods (compromising water and food security), caused long- term health issues , disregarded sacred indigenous territories and rights, exacerbated human rights violations especially in contexts of internal conflict, and contributed to the criminalization of artisanal miners, union and environmental activists and community activists. Large-scale mining explorations and exploitations have also led to an irreversible loss in biodiversity. • Despite the fact that large-scale mining is usually presented as a driving force of sustainable development by mining companies, governments throughout the Americas, and international institutions such as the World Bank, the long-term negative impacts on peoples and territories contrast with the vague promises of jobs, and national economic growth and development. OUR DEMANDS: Divestment: The Canadian government should divest public funds from resource extraction industries. (i.e pension funds invested in GoldCorp and other corporations) and call for public funds to be invested in social programs like free education, affordable housing and universal healthcare . Regulation: The Canadian government should enable legislation that establishes corporate accountability standards for Canadian corporations operating abroad. This legislation should penalize corporations linked to human rights violations and should allow foreign nationals to pursue legal action for damages in Canadian courts (Bills C-300 and C-323). Stop Complicity: Stop utilizing public institutions to assist with high profile public relations campaigns conducted by resource extraction companies (such as the Museum of Natural History in Ottawa, Simon Fraser University, University of Toronto, York University, CIDA-funded projects such as the Devonshire initiative. Binding Community Consent Mechanisms: That governments and courts of the region respect and adhere to the internationally recognized right of free prior and informed consent for Indigenous communities. People Before Profit: End free trade agreements and bilateral investment treaties that enshrine the right of corporations over citizens and communities.

The New Brunswick government is reviewing a controversial drilling technique as concerns continue to be raised over its impact on water, Natural Resources Minister Bruce Northrup told a mining conference on Monday. Northrup represents a southern New Brunswick riding where many Penobsquis residents believe drilling in the area caused their wells to dry up. Northrup used the concerns of Penobsquis residents to underline his message to industry players that the province will be reviewing New Brunswick's regulations regarding the contentious technique called hydraulic fracturing, also known as hydro-fracking. "It really hit home when I got elected in 2006, to see the frustration, and the anger on the faces of the people in the Penobquis area, I don't want to see that again," Northrup said. "It was very time consuming and frustrating for people who live in that area. You can just imagine yourself, if you lost your water, it's almost like losing your power. You take it for granted and that's what we want to do and we're going to step up to the plate, and do it right." The Progressive Conservatives promised in the election campaign to review the regulations and laws around mineral extraction. "Our goal will be to better inform landowners when exploration is taking place on their property, and to protect their rights," Northrup said in a speech. "This is important for both industry and the public. All of us want to see exploration and development done in an environmentally responsible fashion in order to ensure that we can gain the economic benefits possible for our province." While the mining conference was being held in Fredericton, across the province in Norton, a group of residents were attempting to halt seismic testing from being performed near their houses. The RCMP was called in to ask the residents to allow the trucks to continue working. Several of the residents also cited their concerns over the future of their water as a reason for their protest. Hydro-fracking is a process where exploration companies inject a mixture of water, sand and chemicals into the ground, creating cracks in shale rock formations. That process allows companies to extract natural gas from areas that would otherwise go untapped. Other opportunities Apache Canada and Corridor Resources are using the technique in the Elgin area currently. Those two companies have agreed to participate in a new phased environmental process that is being overseen by the New Brunswick government. The new review process would require the companies get approvals at the beginning of a project, before drill sites are selected and at almost every step leading to commercial production. The entire assessment process would be open to the public. Apache Canada is finishing its first phase of drilling for gas and the company says if the results are good, it will start phase two next summer. While Apache and Corridor Resources are already pushing ahead with hydro-fracking, other companies are eyeing New Brunswick as home for future projects. Thomas Alexander, the New Brunswick general manager for SWN Resources Canada Inc., said his company has committed to invest $49 million into the province as a part of a three-year licence to search for oil and gas. Alexander said that many people have welcomed the plans during public meetings because they see the economic payoff. "We see this as a very significant potential for New Brunswick in terms of jobs, and royalty and tax revenue for the government," Alexander said. "It can be a very, very good thing if we're successful in finding what we're looking for." There have been calls from academics and people in the environmental community urging the New Brunswick government to use caution before allowing hydro-fracking to occur in the province. New York state has imposed a two-year moratorium on the process, pending a future story.

Everyone is aware of off-shore oil rigs; these platforms drill down underwater for valuable resources just off the coast of many nations. But, deep in the ocean beyond national aquatic boundaries lies an abundance of natural resources such as gold, copper, manganese and zinc. State-sponsored companies are surveying and staking claim to these resources, but so far, no one has been granted approval to begin extracting them. The International Seabed Authority (ISA) — the governing body that oversees all activities in international waters (known as the Area) — is currently developing regulations for the extraction of marine minerals. Rules and procedures that govern liability for damage arising from mining activities will be crucial aspect of this regulatory framework. Who is responsible when an environmental disaster occurs as a result of mining activities? To assist in clarifying these legal issues of responsibility and liability, the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Secretariat of the International Seabed Authority established the Liability Issues for Deep Seabed Mining project. Under the direction of Neil Craik (CIGI), Hannah Lily (Commonwealth Secretariat) and Alfonso Ascencio-Herrera (ISA Secretariat), this project seeks to provide a foundational understanding of key questions surrounding the further development of liability rules.

Thom Calandra invests along side his audience and subscribers largely in natural resource companies. Blue chip stocks are overpriced in Thom’s opinion and the sector where true value can still be found is in mining and energy stocks. The recent small rebound has renewed interest and increased appetite for risk, but will it continue? The stock and bond markets are way overvalued in all jurisdictions while most mining stocks are still way undervalued. This means good things for commodity investors, but gold in particular is likely to outperform. Platinum, coal, graphite and tungsten are also all cheap at the moment. Them discusses a few of his favorite picks, including a new gold producer in Mexico, Canarc Resources. Canarc's operations in Mexico are looking very good with some rich deposits of gold and silver. Mega Uranium is also looking like a sound investment, and has substantial holdings in NexGen, acting as a proxy for investors not yet positioned. Talking points from this week's interview: • The influence of Canadian currency • Swiss Franc and US dollar losing value • Many mining shares well undervalued • It can be a lot of fun to make money, so get positioned!

James Munson (bitly.com/MinerOpposition) traveled to Guatemala in July to explore the stories of mines caught up in a global debate over the responsibilities of Canadian-owned mining firms in developing countries. With Canada moving toward a new policy for the sector, Munson explores how the Fenix nickel mine in eastern Guatemala became the test case for bringing allegations of murder, rape and assault tied to the mine to an Ontario court room. Meanwhile, Goldcorp Inc.’s Marlin mine in the western part of the country has been the subject of protests and findings that its operations broke human rights standards. The stories of these mines, and the people who live beside them are the starting point for Miner Opposition — http://www.bitly.com/MinerOpposition

Russian companies actively make deals and purchases to entrench themselves in key mining and oil markets. As the Oilprice.com wrote, it may a be a serious challenge for the US, Canada, Great Britain and Australia. The Russian mining companies have launched a significant number of new projects for the latest week. Everything started from purchase of the Indian Essar Oil company consortium, worth 7.5bln dollars. Another important deal on the Indian market is agreement with the Gazprom on supplies of the liquefied natural gas of 2.5m tons. Everything happened at a time when the President of Russia Vladimir Putin visited India, during which the Head of State signed agreements on cooperation in the oil sphere and joint research on a gas pipeline installation in the country. A deal in golden sphere was also reached. The Indian company SUN Gold along with the Russian fund will develop the Klyuchevsk field in the Eastern Siberia, the company plans to invest 500m dollars. Players from China and investors from the Republic of South Africa and Brazil are also involved. The authors believe that it evidences Russia’s aggressive moving forward in energy and mining sphere in order to secure itself key global markets. As it is noted, it’s an evident challenge to other mining countries.

Tanzania is actually a rich country - rich in natural resources. Industrial mining companies have been exploiting Tanzania's gold deposits since the turn of the millennium. But, as in so many of Africa's resource-rich countries, the profits end up in the hands of a very few. Every day, in a gold mine in the country's northwest, rich and poor meet when hundreds of local villagers illegally invade the premises. The Canadian mining corporation Barrick Gold tries to keep the trespassers out, but many people have already lost their lives. Powered by NewsLook.com
