Guatemala: Today El Tambor....

...and tomorrow, who knows?

Yesterday the Guatemala courts ruled that the El Tambor (aka La Puya) gold mine in Guatemala, owned by private US company Kappes (KCA), must be closed and its licence suspended because it did not have the necessary "social licence permit", in other words formal permission from its local community to operate.

For the record, Tahoe Resources (TAHO) at Escobal doesn't have that piece of paper, either. Consider it next in the firing line.
