Elma Zacarias drives a dumptruck at the Glamis Gold mining project, January 26, 2005 in Sipacapa, Guatemala. The project represents a chance for Glamis to grow after a failed hostile takeover bid on fellow mid-size Goldcorp. The mine has been the focus of violent protests and a national debate about development. According to Steve Baumann, vice-president of Glamis Gold, the company will pay $60 million in total taxes and royalties for the project.
