Skouries miners accuse municipality of opposing project

Miners from the Skouries gold mine held a protest outside the town hall in Arnaia, Halkidiki, on Thursday.

They accused the Municipality of Aristoteli of opposing the mine, which is operated by Canadian-owned Hellas Gold.

The government recently revoked the license for the mine’s processing plan so it could review the circumstances under which it was awarded.

The miners were unable to hold a meeting with Deputy Mayor Charalambos Lazaridis as he left the building when the protest began.
