Barrick Offer to WSDP

EUREKA COUNTY - On March 5, 2010, Barrick Gold of North America made an offer to the Western Shoshone Defense Project. The offer is that in exchange for 1) dismissal of Cortez Hills and the HCCEUP lawsuits, 2) the Te-Moak and Timbisha Tribe and their constituent bands refraining from suing and opposing Barrick over any proposed mines or projects in the future at Cortez, and 3) ending claims in any forum that Barrick mining activity constitutes a violation of human rights, the mines would provide funding for education, elder care, and providing 3,400 acres of land.
