Milwaukee company Commerce Group takes on El Salvador in mining case

Thursday, December 16, 2010

A Milwaukee-based mining company, the Commerce Group, is suing the government of El Salvador for $100 million, arguing it unjustly revoked permits for a gold mine in the country.

The government of El Salvador said earlier this year that no more mining projects will be allowed in the country.

A Canadian mining company, Pacific Rim, has filed a similar lawsuit.
