Canadian Mining Company Set to Destroy Mexican Heritage Village

Jamie Kneen Communications and Outreach Coordinator responsible for: strategic research, social media, and public engagement; our Africa program, environmental assessment, and uranium mining.

Mike Boylan visited the community of Cerro de San Pedro, San Luis PotosĂ­, Mexico on November 7 and 8, 2006, where the unlicensed activities of Minera San Xavier, a subsidiary of Metallica Resources, threaten to destroy the community. He witnessed and documented rapid activity of heavy machinery in preparation to begin large scale blasting and both heard and felt explosions coming from the mine site. The mine is clearly progressing with its activities while lacking legal clearance, access rights to land and environmental permits.
