Para mis amigos no-hispanoparlantes: THESE ARE THE INFAMOUS 'ice reservoirs" rather than glaciers that BARRICK Gold Corp has submitted to be revised to Chile's regional environmental-impact assessment (EIA) (COREMA) for the Pascua-Lama gold development project in Chile's Atacama region. The commission had asked for amendments to the company's plans for the project, including possibly using underground mining for a portion of the mine which would otherwise require the removal of glaciers in the area. However, Barrick says "studies by international glaciologists redefine "the accumulations of ice" as "ice reservoirs" rather than glaciers". The company says the resubmission of the EIA, which still includes the planned removal of the ice, contains improvements in monitoring of water quality, treatment of acid runoff, water management, solid-waste management, dust treatment, and protection of flora and fauna.--oh yes, GOOD BARRICK!--
