MINING.com apologizes to Australian Bullion Exchange Limited
On July 15, 2014, an article entitled, “Australia speeds up probe on alleged $65 million gold scam”, written by Cecilia Jamasmie, was published on MINING.com. The logo of Australian Bullion Exchange Limited (“ABX”) appeared next to the post. There were also false statements made in the comments to the article which specifically identified ABX and falsely suggested ABX was involved in the fraud.
MINING.com wants to make clear that it has no evidence that ABX is in any way involved in the reported fraud. Nor does MINING.com have any reason to suspect that ABX is involved in the reported fraud. Further, MINING.com has no knowledge of ABX being investigated by the Australian Federal Police, the Australian Tax Office or any other Australian government or judicial agency and MINING.com did not intend to suggest otherwise.
MINING.com sincerely regrets the use of ABX’s logo and any suggestion that ABX is in any way being investigated by the Australian authorities or involved in a fraud.
MINING.com offers an unqualified retraction and apology to ABX.
