Peru mining taxes failing, fanning protests - "By law, half of all income tax generated by mining companies -- such as BHP Billiton and Canada's Barrick Gold -- goes back to the provinces where minerals were unearthed. Earlier this year Peru began levying an additional royalty on mineral sales. According to CAD, mining tax transfers to regional governments have risen by 1,148 percent between 2001 and 2005. But often mountainous, remote mining regions complain they are no better off and are desperate for schools and hospitals." More
