Hel­las Gold calls for talks on mines

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Hel­las Gold, the com­pany man­ag­ing the Halkidiki mines where work has been sus­pended, urged the gov­ern­ment to en­ter talks af­ter it de­scribed Energy Min­is­ter Panos Sk­ourletis’s crit­i­cism of the firm’s ac­tiv­i­ties as “lack­ing truth and sci­en­tific ac­cu­racy.”

Sk­ourletis, who has sus­pended the tech­ni­cal stud­ies for one of the mines, claimed yesterday that the firm shipped “highly toxic” met­als from Thes­sa­loniki to China when they should have been trans­ported from a spe­cially con­structed har­bor in Stra­toni. Hel­las Gold de­nied this was the case and called for talks over what it de­scribed as “vi­tally im­por­tant” in­vest­ment for Greece. Min­ers who have been sus­pended staged protests yesterday in the tun­nels lead­ing to the mines.
