ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A judge has ordered opponents of Barrick Gold of North America’s huge gold mine project at a northern Nevada mountain to list Western Shoshone tribal members who have visited the site for religious purposes.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert McQuaid Jr. issued the order Friday at the request of Toronto-based Barrick, the world’s biggest gold mining company.
“The alternative is dismissal of plaintiffs’ claims under the Religious Freedoms Restoration Act,” Barrick spokesman Lou Schack told the Elko Daily Free Press.
