Photo of the Day

FILE - In this March 22, 2006 file photo, a woman plays a Kultrum, a traditional Mapuche instrument, during a demonstration on World Water Day by people holding a sign that reads in Spanish ""Let us take care the water, No to Pascua Lama" rejecting a gold mining project they claim will  affect water supply to a fertile valley in northern Chile, outside the presidential palace La Moneda in Santiago, Chile. A Chilean court 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. Barrick also faces growing environmental resistance in Argentina, which shares the Pascua-Lama project, and the Dominican Republic’s government is insisting on rewriting the royalties contract for its $4 billion Pueblo Viejo mine.
