  • The company has offered an extra 15% stake in its Porgera gold mine in Papua New Guinea to local landowners, according to a letter from its CEO, in a bid to break an impasse with the national government over the mine's future
  • Any deal would be the first struck by a resources company under economic nationalist prime minister, James Marape, who came to power a year ago seeking to retain a bigger share of the country's resource riches
  • The government's position on Barrick's offer is unclear
  • Marape's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment and he has previously expressed a desire for the state to operate the mine itself
BlackRock Inc (BLK):
  • A U.S. judge on Thursday said institutional investors, including BlackRock and Allianz's Pacific Investment Management Co, can pursue much of their lawsuit accusing 15 major banks of rigging prices in the $6.6 trillion-a-day foreign exchange market
  • U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield in Manhattan said the nearly 1,300 plaintiffs, including many mutual funds and exchange-traded funds, plausibly alleged that the banks conspired to rig currency benchmarks from 2003 to 2013 and profit at their expense

  • The bank took a mark-to-market trading loss of C$88.2 million in one day in March due mainly to volatility in the gold market, it said in its second-quarter earnings report on Thursday

  • The company hid a tweet from President Donald Trump and accused him of breaking its rules by "glorifying violence", after he tweeted that looters at protests in Minneapolis would be shot
  • Twitter's decision to step in, at a time of racially charged civil unrest in cities across the United States, escalates a feud between Trump and tech companies
  • It came just hours after Trump signed an executive order threatening Silicon Valley social media firms with new regulations over free speech
  • Trump's message can now be read only after clicking on a notice which says: "This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible."
