Hellas Gold – 95 percent owned by Eldorado Gold Inc Raided By Activists

The raiders set equipment and offices alight in fight over the fate of mine site in Skouries, Greece. 27 people are being held by local police.

There has long been vehement opposition to the prospect of a gold mine and processing plant being built at Skouries in the Halkidiki peninsula, with residents objecting to what they say will be the destruction of pristine forest in the area, leading to the loss of tourism, fishing and farming.
