Barrick confirms mine water leakage at North Mara, no risk found so far

Global gold and copper miner Barrick Gold Corporation has advised of a water leak at its North Mara mine, in Tanzania, but says it has found no reason for concern to the community or aquatic biodiversity of a nearby river.

The company explains that the mine has experienced an uncontrolled release of low-quality water to the environment, following an unexpected failure of a water transfer pipeline along the haul road between the Gokona and Rama operations.
