AngloGold Ashanti and other miners ordered to hand back land to natives in Colombia

A Colombian legal tribunal ordered 11 gold mining companies this week to stop operations in the northwest of the country and return the land to Embera Katio tribe, which used to live in the area. The ruling rescinds any titles and concessions to the area held by companies, include London-listed AngloGold Ashanti, and local firms Exploraciones Choco Colombia, Gongora and El Molino.
