Infinito Gold lays off 223 workers in Costa Rica following decision by court

Friday, December 16, 2011

Industrias Infinito, the subsidiary of the Canadian mining company Infinito Gold, laid off 223 employees following the court decision last month that stopped the development of its Crucitas open-pit gold mine in Costa Rica.

The mine has been the centre of controversy since former president Oscar Arias awarded a concession to Infinito.

Last month the Supreme Court of Costa Rica annulled the concession.
