Pacific Rim claims $315 million from El Salvador
Pacific Rim Mining says its US subsidiary has filed a $315-million damage claim against the government of El Salvador.
The claim by PacRim Cayman is part of arbitration hearing over a failure by the government to issue necessary mining licenses for the company's El Dorado gold project.
Pacific Rim said Monday that the arbitration is in its final, merit-based phase before the World Bank's International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes.
