"I congratulate Barrick for implementing our agreement and call upon other mining firms to emulate the move in ensuring a win-win situation," said the Minister for Finance and Planning Dr Philip Mpango who received a dummy cheque from the company's representatives, according to information from The Citizen.
Further, Barrick's statement also indicated that "In terms of its framework agreement with the government, the shipping of some 1,600 containers of concentrate stockpiled from Bulyanhulu and Buzwagi resumed in April and the first $100 million received from the sale has gone to the government. Barrick said all material issues had been dealt with or were being finalized. This initial payment will be followed by five annual payments of $40 million each". ■
