Acacia Mining said it was seeking a stay of international arbitration proceedings against Tanzania, a step that could ease tensions between the two sides locked in a dispute following a $190 billion tax bill, two days before a deadline for a buyout proposal by Barrick Gold. Adding to pressure on Acacia, the company said late on Tuesday it had been notified of an imminent ban on the use of a storage dam that would prevent its North Mara gold mine - its main source of revenue - from operating. The offer to postpone arbitration, which was scheduled to start on Monday, precedes a looming July 19 deadline for Acacia's majority owner Barrick Gold, holder of a 63.9% stake, to make a firm bid to buy out Acacia.​
