Someone Else's Treasure - Guatemala
Within the Department of San Marcos, in the western highlands of Guatemala, the Marlin Mine is located along the border between the municipalities of San Miguel Ixtahuacán and Sipakapa. The Marlin Mine, which has both open-pit and underground operations, is fully owned by Vancouver-based Goldcorp Inc., one of the worlds biggest gold companies. The mine is operated by Montana Exploradora, a subsidiary fully owned by Goldcorp. Someone Elses Treasure is an ongoing multimedia project which brings to light some of the experiences of people around the world whose lives have been impacted by the global mining industry including communities in the Philippines, Tanzania, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Chile, Canada, and now Guatemala. The mining companies perspectives are easily accessible. The views of NGOs, human rights organizations and environmentalists are easily accessible. The perspectives of economists and academics are easily accessible. The views of the politicians, geologists and engineers are also easily accessible. But the perspectives of the people who actually live next to these mines are not. For this reason, the focus of Someone Elses Treasure is on the people, the local communities, not the companies.

Goldcorp's San Martin Mine Reclamation in Honduras
Goldcorp's San Martin Mine in Honduras is an example of responsible, sustainable development at each stage of the mining life cycle, including closure and reclamation. Following the closure of the mine, 1,500 hectares around the mine camp were donated by Goldcorp to the San Martin Foundation. Today, ecotourism and farming take place on the former mine site, providing functioning ecosystems and sustainable jobs to the people of the Valle de Siria. Goldcorp's legacy of sustainable prosperity provides social and economic benefits to area residents that outlive the mine-life of our operations. http://www.goldcorp.com/corporate_responsibility/

In the referendum, 28,209 people voted 'no' to mining exploration and exploitation as well as the construction of hydro-electric plants, based on the argument that such activities affect all ground and underground resources.

The purpose of the activity was to review, analyze, and judge the behavior of and the health and environmental impacts caused by the Canadian multinational mining company Goldcorp, as well as the company's diverse social, political, and economic impacts on our communities and territories. The tribunal was comprised of 13 domestic and international judges as well as specialists in health, the environment, and human rights. The goal of the tribunal was to listen to the demands and testimonies of the populations affected by Goldcorp's mining operations in: -The Los Filos mine in Carrizalillo, state of Guerrero, Mexico. -The San Martin mine, in the Siria Valley, department of Francisco Morazán, Honduras, and; -The Marlin mine, in San Miguel Ixtahuacán, department of San Marcos, Guatemala. After two days of testimony, the tribunal issued the following sentence (edited): (...) We condemn the actions of Goldcorp at its projects located in Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico, for being considered highly damaging to health and the quality of life, environmental wellbeing, and the right to self-determination of the rural and indigenous communities affected. At the same time, we condemn the complicit and irresponsible attitude of the governments of the countries where these denunciations are coming from, for not guaranteeing the rights of those affected by the company on trial. Similarly, we condemn the complicity of the Canadian government for supporting and promoting the irresponsible mining investments in Mesoamerica in various ways. We demand that Goldcorp: Repair all harm done to the health of the population, the environmental damage, and general harm inflicted on the affected rural and indigenous communities.Compensate past, present and future damage inflicted upon the people and communities, taking into account that the contamination is ongoing and can last hundreds of years. Suspend all mining operations in Mesoamerica and guarantee that the actions denounced here will not be repeated. Issued in the municipality of San Miguel Ixtahuacán, July 15th, 2012.

Goldcorp CEO Speaks Out on His First Day At the Helm
David Garofalo joins Kitco News on his first day as chief at Goldcorp, one of the largest gold companies. The former Hudbay Minerals CEO says he remains optimistic about Goldcorp for 2016 despite the company’s recent $4.2 billion loss. He will be focused in ‘reorienting the business’ to ensure current projects remain successful. ‘We have a $13 million exploration program that’s focused around existing projects,’ he added. Looking at the gold price, Garofalo said the dynamics have changed now that the Federal Reserve may be holding off on further tightening. ‘The Fed - and I’ve never seen this in my entire career - has done a complete 180…Now they’re very dovish where they were hawkish two months ago.’ April Comex gold futures were last up $13.80 an ounce at $1,234.20.

Beginning a New Chapter - Marlin's Legacy Lives On | Goldcorp
Goldcorp’s Marlin mine ceased production on May 31, 2017 marking the end of more than a decade of strong community ties and sustainable mining practices. Located in the western highlands of Guatemala, in the municipality of San Miguel Ixtahuacan approximately 300 kilometers northwest of Guatemala City, Marlin began production in late 2005 and became a part of the Goldcorp portfolio with the acquisition of Glamis Gold in 2006. The mine operated as both an open pit and underground mine for 12 years, producing 2.3 million ounces of gold and 63 million ounces of silver. Over that time, we worked with the local communities to ensure the San Marcos region of Guatemala will continue to benefit from Marlin long after Goldcorp completes mining activities, and that respect for human rights and the UN sustainable development goals extend into our closure activities, which will continue for at least two more years.

Eyes That See, Hearts That Feel
CIRDI, the Canadian International Resources and Development Institute, was originally mandated by Stephen Harper and has received over $40M of Official Development Aid money. It partners with mining companies and universities to provide policy and regulatory advice to countries where Canadian mining companies have major interests. Hosted at the University of British Columbia (UBC), this institute is positioned as a significant player in the powerful structures imposing an extractivist paradigm on sovereign nations. CIRDI has close ties to Canadian companies operating in Guatemala that have been accused of environmental and human rights abuses, such as Goldcorp. Mentioned several times in this video, Goldcorp is one of CIRDI’s strategic partners, and, by offering the company’s mines in Guatemala and elsewhere as test sites for CIRDI's initiatives, its executives hope to "export" their Canadian extractive governance experience on developing countries. Some of CIRDI’s other partners have close links to Tahoe Resources, HudBay, and mineral exploration firms also operating in Guatemala. Elsewhere in Latin America, Asia, and Africa, CIRDI proponents and Canadian diplomats are actively meeting with high-level officials to make strategic interventions that shift government policies to align with the profit oriented interests of Canadian extractive corporations. On 2014 and 2015 visits, the testimonies of members of Guatemalan communities affected by mining extraction were recorded, to understand more deeply how they have been affected by Canadian exploration and mining companies’ operations there. Those in this video have expressed, once again, that they wish to be left to pursue their own visions of development, without the pressures of Canadian mining companies along with banks, diplomats, and academics advocating for policies that give preference to extractive industries. Please join the communities affected by Canadian mining companies, and students at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and UBC, in their urgent call for the Canadian government to repeal CIRDI’s mandate and funding. The website stoptheinstitute.ca hosts information, concerns, critique, recommendations, and records acquired under freedom of information legislation about CIRDI and how it fits into a context of international plunder by Canadian mining companies and the government’s policy of economic diplomacy on their behalf.

Local population of Sicapaca in Guatemala facing health hazards
Goldcorp world's biggest gold mining company is shrouded in controversy over its operation of goldmines near town of Sicapaca in western highlands of Guatemala. Local Mayan Indians have said no to the open pit mine they claim is damaging their health and community cohesion. Goldcorp denies this, insisting it brings benefits to local communities paying on the order of $10-12m just in salaries for people in the local community and Guatemala in general, and that it takes social responsibilities seriously. Despite the claims made by the company, a climate of distrust, fear and resentment between the company and Mayan activists continues to fester. Mayans have voted in consultas, or referenda, saying no to the mine. The mining activity has caused cracks in the houses of indigenous people. Their skins have developed rashes as result of mine contamination. Protests by local people have been successfully crushed by use of force. How does all this hue and cry bother shareholders who are reaping huge dividends especially after gold prices tripled bringing windfall profits for the company. http://www.instablogs.com/

Marlin's Socio-Economic Legacy Lives On | Goldcorp
In the second installment of our four part tribute to the legacy of Marlin mine, we focus on the social benefits this mine has brought to the San Marcos region of Guatemala. Goldcorp believes that local opportunities for community members near our mining operations should create benefits that extend beyond economic participation in mining activities. Following a review of baseline socio-economic information that gave us a sense for the areas of greatest need, and in consultation with community leaders, we helped devise a plan that would provide much-needed support for health and educational programs, as well as infrastructure that will benefit communities in the long-term.

Face to Face with Grahame Russell - Are Canadian mining companies getting away with murder?
Grahame Russell of Rights Action joins us for a 30 minute interview about the health, environmental and other heinous human rights violations caused by Canadian mining companies in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador -- and about the impunity with which they operate. While our lying politicians and media tell us we are fighting for democracy in Libya and Afghanistan, we find out that really, Canadian Corporations are terrorists. This program is a shocking eye-opener. ©2011 Lazarus Productions
