Tibet Groups Pressure Sino Gold to End Mineral Explorations - 2003-05-21

An international coalition of human rights and environment groups called on Australian mining company, Sino Gold Ltd. to cease all exploration in Tibet until Tibetans are in a position to freely express their wishes about the use of their resources. The coalition says that if a mine goes ahead, Sino Gold would the first foreign company to mine in Tibet, creating a precedent for other foreign companies to exploit non-renewable resources with negligible benefit to the Tibetans.
