Tahoe, together with its subsidiaries, explores, develops, and operates
mines in the Americas. The Company primarily produces copper, gold,
silver, lead/zinc, and natural gas and petroleum, as well as precious
On April 3, 2013, Tahoe announced that Guatemala’s Ministry of Energy
and Mines (“MEM”) had granted the Company an exploitation license for
the Escobal mine, a large silver mine located in the department of Santa
Rosa in Southern Guatemala.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s
business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
(i) Guatemala’s MEM had granted the Escobal mining license to Tahoe’s
Minera San Rafael subsidiary without prior consultation with Guatemala’s
Xinca indigenous people; (ii) the foregoing constituted a violation of
Guatemalan law and provided a basis for suspension of the Escobal
license; (iii) consequently, the Company’s revenues associated with the
Escobal mining license were unlikely to be sustainable; and (iv) as a
result of the foregoing, Tahoe’s public statements were materially false
and misleading at all relevant times.
On July 6, 2017, Tahoe disclosed that the Supreme Court of Guatemala had
issued a provisional decision suspending the Escobal mining license of
Minera San Rafael, a Tahoe subsidiary, in connection with a legal action
brought by the human rights organization Centro de Acción Legal
Ambiental y Social de Guatemala (“CALAS”) against Guatemala’s MEM. CALAS
alleges that MEM violated the Xinca indigenous people’s right of
consultation prior to granting the Escobal mining license.
On this news, Tahoe’s common share price fell $2.74, or 33.01%, to close
at $5.56 on July 6, 2017.
