Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Barrick Gold Corporation (“Barrick” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ABX).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, the investigation focuses on whether Barrick omitted material information regarding the cost and environmental impact of the Company’s Pascua-Lama Project, which is located on the border between Argentina and Chile.
On May 24, 2013, the Company announced that it had received a resolution from Chile’s Superintendence of the Environment, suspending the Pascua-Lama Project over environmental problems and imposing a fine of approximately $16 million. Following this news, Barrick’s stock priced dropped nearly 65% from its Class Period high.
