Goldcorp president defends mining practices at Marlin in Guatemala
Goldcorp president Chuck Jeannes defended his company’s mining practices at its Marlin mine in Guatemala, at the Canadian miner’s annual general meeting.
Jeannes said Goldcorp is applying the same environmental and human rights standards as it does in mines in Canada and the United States.
He said the dispute over land ownership and environmental impacts of the mine boils down to a difference of vision between those who feel mining should not be a part of economic development and those, like Goldcorp, who do.
