UPDATE: Wanna know what's interesting? I'll tell you what's interesting. According to this report ABX made the decision to voluntarily halt operations at Pascua Lama on October 27th in light of the upcoming Sernageomin report and recommendations. Then on October 31st Sernageomin ordered the official halt. But on Thursday November 1st ABX published this news release on its 3q12 activities, went into great detail about Pascua Lama in the NR, talked about its development, its present and its future but didn't say a single thing about the ordered halt in activities at the project. Not a dicky bird, not in that NR and not since. I mean, wouldn't you consider a government ordered halt on your $8Bn gold project to be material information?
UPDATE 2: Reuters English language now on the case.
UPDATE 3: In a NR in Chile, ABX has said that the stop work order only applies to earth moving work related to the pre-stripping process. We're enormously thankful for ABX's transparency and how they'll tell you about their "voluntary action" taken on October 27th in a NR.... in Spanish....for Chile...on November 10th
