A New Gold Company Established in Esquel

Esquel, Chubut

3rd May 2006

Recently, mining company Patagonain Gold ( bought several mining properties located on RANGE ESQUEL and RANGE HUEMULES. Neighbours will protest in front of the offices of this new mining enterprise.

These projects are situated near the suspended mine of Canada's Meridian Gold, whose activity has been frustrated due to opposition by the immense majority of the population of the city of Esquel, in addition to rejection by all the communities in the Andean area of Chubut.

The gold field PATAGONIA GOLD is trying to exploit is located on the Cordón de Huemules, aproximately 25 kilometers to the west of Esquel. The area is just at the edge of the water division boundary with Lake Futalaufquen, in the Los Alerces National Park.

In addition, the local pipeline water company is developing a project to supply drinking water to the town of Trevelin, from the River Percey, although the mine plans to draw on the water sources of this very river.

Together with Meridian Gold, the new minig corporation will be rejected and repudiated "THEY SHALL HAVE TO GO AWAY FROM ESQUEL- THEY SHALL HAVE TO GO AWAY FROM CHUBUT - THEY SHALL HAVE TO GO AWAY FROM PATAGONIA!"
