London-based human rights organisation Colombia Solidarity Campaign has published an Alternative Report about La Colosa, the AngloGold Ashanti gold mining project in Colombia’s municipality of Cajamarca (Tolima), entitled La Colosa: A Death Foretold.

The report unveils, for the first time, findings which clearly show that if the production phase of the La Colosa gold mine goes ahead, its implications to local communities would be much graver than previously anticipated. Community leaders and human rights defenders are already paying the highest price - their lives - for their opposition to the large-scale corporate mining project.

This report is a result of extensive research that included more than 100 interviews on the ground, legal document analysis, and technical assessment by Dr. Mark Muller, a highly respected international expert on mining.

AngloGold Ashanti is a company listed on the London Stock Exchange.

Colombia Solidarity Campaign (Campaña de Solidaridad por Colombia), organización de derechos humanos basada en Londres, ha publicado un Informe Alternativo acerca del proyecto de Minería de Oro de AngloGold Ashanti en Cajamarca, Tolima, intitulado La Colosa: Una Muerte Anunciada.  Este informe es resultado de una investigación que abarca 108 entrevistas, análisis de documentos, y asesoría técnica del Dr. Mark Muller, reconocido experto internacional en minería.

El reporte desvela hechos que no han sido revelados antes por investigadores o medios que han trabajado en el tema. Demuestra además, que los impactos de una eventual fase de explotación minera serían mucho mayores a los anunciados e imaginados por los tolimenses y por la nación misma.
