Barrick investors file suit over Pascua Lama

Barrick Gold Corp. was hit with another potential class-action lawsuit from investors, alleging that the Canadian miner misrepresented troubles with its Pascua Lama gold project in the Andes.

The suit, which has yet to be certified as a class action, was filed in the Ontario Superior Court and seeks $6-billion in damages, including for losses related to the drop in Barrick’s shares.
