A Chilean court’s halted on April 10, 2013 the construction of Barrick Gold Corp.’s $8 billion, border-straddling mine on the high-altitude spine of the Andes. Chile’s environmental and mining ministries are on record supporting the suspension, which is based on allegations that construction is kicking up dust that has settled on the nearby Toro 1, Toro 2 and Esperanza glaciers, hastening their retreat, and threatening the Estrecho river, which supplies water to the Diaguita tribe living downstream.
