Chile mining giant accused of poisoning water

Operations at gold mine suspended until company builds drainage systems and canals to prevent contamination.

    The world's largest gold mining company has been accused of poisoning Chile's water supplies.

    Last month, an appeals court suspended a controversial development by Barrick Gold Corp on the border with Argentina. 

    It followed claims that the mining giant ignored environmental regulations.
