Process materialsBarrick remains committed to safety and environmental protection systems. We are committed to handling all materials and chemicals used at our sites in a safe and responsible manner. The use of cyanide, explosives, electricity and fuels at our operating sites is closely monitored, using world-class procedures which represent a significant cost of production. The materials used can be broadly separated into two categories: raw materials (the ore from which gold, silver and copper are extracted) and process materials, which are the materials used in the production of gold and copper, but are not part of the final product.

This region has excellent geological potential for potential gold, silver and base metal deposits. In the area of industrial minerals there are untapped reserves of clay, limestone, silica sand and feldspar.

The main mining activities in this region are concentrated in the provinces of Barahona and San Cristóbal; they are also found to a lesser extent in the province of Pedernales, Boca Chica and the National District. Gypsum, salt, marble, travertine, silica, limestone and Larimar (semi-precious gemstone) are mined in Barahona. In the other provinces limestone rock is extracted for different uses.

Throughout the region there is a high potential for the exploitation and use of limestone rock. In the provinces of San Cristóbal and San Juan there is a relatively important geological potential to find possible metallic deposits. In the province of Pedernales there are large exploitable reserves of bauxite, with a certain content of rare earth elements.

In 2001, Barrick merged with Homestake, which marked the acquisition of the Veladero mine in San Juan province. During 2006, following the acquisition of Placer Dome, the Zaldívar copper mine, located in the Antofagasta Region of Chile, became part of Barrick’s assets in South America.

The book Noir Canada. Pillage, corruption et criminalité en Afrique (Black Canada: Pillage, corruption and criminality in Africa by Alain Deneault)[7] deals with the actions of several Canadian companies in Africa. Regarding Barrick, he claims that the company was involved in the massacre at the Bulyanhulu mine in Tanzania, where more than fifty artisanal miners (“pirquineros”) were buried alive because of the government’s haste to clear the site and fill in the shafts.[8] In the case of Barrick, he claims that the company was involved in the massacre at the Bulyanhulu mine in Tanzania, where more than fifty artisanal miners (“pirquineros”) were buried alive because of the government’s haste to clear the site and fill the shafts.

Regarding the book’s claims about Bulyanhulu, on October 29, 2002, the World Bank’s CAO released a report summarizing its assessment of the allegations made by Lawyers for Environmental Action Movement (LEAT), about Bulyanhulu. In serious allegations, the complaints pointed to the death of artisanal miners during an eviction action in 1996, prior to Barrick’s purchase of the Bulyanhulu property from Sutton Resources Ltd. in 1999. The Report dismissed the allegations, stating that there was no convincing evidence to support LEAT’s version of events and that the repetition of unfounded allegations did a disservice to the interests of the people living near the mine.

Barrick Gold Corporation will extract gold, silver and copper from the Pascua-Lama deposits, adjacent to the Veladero development. It is located on the trans-Andean border about 150 kilometers from Vallenar, Chile.

The chimera of working for the Barrick Gold Corporation and the subcontractors that build roads and facilities in the heights of the San Juan Andes Mountains ends up being a fleeting illusion. In principle, because the companies hire people preferably from neighboring countries and other provinces, while those who are hired end up resigning because of the inclement weather and altitude sickness, which has already claimed at least six victims (Las Noticias newspaper, San Juan, Wednesday, April 28, 2004, and the weekly “La Séptima”).

Working for Barrick Gold at the Veladero and Pascua-Lama mining sites is torture. The scarcity of jobs is the weapon of extortion used by the Canadian multinational, located in the financial world among the best known, such as Rio Tinto, Freeport Mac Moran, BHP-Billiton, Newmont, Placer Dome, among other smaller but equally destructive companies, all with offices in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia. But Barrick, like the
