Coeur says Morales Administration won’t nationalize San Bartolomé mine

Bolivian officials says President Evo Morales will announce on May 1 that he is dismantling Bolivian mining’s “privatization model” and will nationalize former state-owned mines.

Coeur d’Alene Mines announced Thursday that it has received assurances from the Morales Administration that its San Bartolomé silver mine is not targeted for any proposed mining nationalization in Bolivia.
