Residents have battled for several years against mining plans by the local arm of the Canadian company, Dundee Precious Metals. But there are those who see potential economic gains - and note that the firm has modified plans considerably in response to local environmental fears. Earlier this year the Bulgarian government granted the company 30-year mining rights to a 19 sq km area, and the environment ministry recently approved a document outlining the environmental impact of the planned mine. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-15893567 ------------------------------------ Sageata Albastra e cea mai mare tzeapa a transportului public!Yahoo!
