Lawsuit could set precedent for Canadian mining companies

Monday, November 27, 2017

Legal proceedings were held last week in Toronto related to a case against a Canadian mining company that formerly was operating through a subsidiary in Guatemala. The outcome of the case could have wider repercussions for Canada-based mining companies who do business overseas.

Base and precious metals miner Hudbay Minerals is defending itself against allegations that five women from a remote Guatemalan community were raped by employees of one of Hudbay's former subsidiaries.
