Three new independent studies have confirmed allegations of serious health and environmental violations by GoldCorp at its Marlin mine in Guatemala.
Meanwhile, hundreds of Indians living near the mine are accusing a Supreme Court justice of illegally acquiring some of their territory, on behalf of the mining company.
Goldcorp is a Canadian company but among its major investors are British-based AXA Investment Managers UK Ltd (US$4.3 million), Blackrock Commodities Income Trust plc, and City Natural Resources High Yield Trust PLC, according to the document From Money to Metals ( by mining researcher Roger Moody.)
