Canada's B2Gold faces mine protests in Nicaragua

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Hundreds of small miners in Nicaragua protested against Canada's B2Gold expansion plans in the central region of the country.

The artisanal miners blocked access to El Cafetal city on Sunday and demanded that the company stop plans to develop a new zone near its La Libertad and Santo Domingo operations.

B2Gold – worth $2.3 billion on the Toronto stock exchange – owns two operating mines in Nicaragua and one in the Philippines and has been ramping up production.
