Ethiopian jets attack Canadian gold mine in Eritrea

(Mar 23, 2015, Editor))--Media reports from East Africa on Saturday claimed that a gold mine partly owned by Canadian company Nevsun Resources (NYSE:NSU, TSX:NSU) was hit by Ethiopian fighter jets.

At least two media outlets confirmed the report, including Tigrai Online, an Ethiopian daily news site which stated that the Bisha mine, located 150 kilometres from Asmara, Eritrea, was a target of two bombing raids conducted on Friday. The other target was the military depot at Mai Edaga Tikul. An attempt to contact Nevsun at their Vancouver office on Sunday, seeking the veracity of the media reports, was unsuccessful.

However in an operational update on Sunday, the company stated that "While there was an act of vandalism at the Bisha plant late last week, there was no significant impact to operations and no personnel were harmed." Read more from »
