Guatemala finds no evidence of pollution at Marlin mine
Guatemala’s vice president said government studies haven’t found evidence to substantiate alleged environmental damage and human-rights violations at the Marlin mine of Canada’s Goldcorp.
Further investigation is needed and the government is seeking funding for a two-year probe by US researchers, Rafael Espada said.
Marlin is among mines in Guatemala established without full consultation of indigenous Maya residents, said Rural Unity Committee, a rights group. The Maya allege Marlin put metals in water supplies, damaging the health of local people.
