Delegates bearish at commodities forum

Mining machinery works at "pre-stripping" in the future open pit area of the Pascua-Lama mine straddling the Chile-Argentina border at about 5,000 metres above sea level in this January 21, 2012 handout photo obtained by Reuters July 27, 2012. Pre-stripping is the act of removing waste rock material in advance of mining the ore-bearing rock underneath. Barrick's share price has fallen more than 20 percent this year, mainly because of massive cost overruns at its Pascua-Lama gold mine on the Chile-Argentia border, August 16, 2012. The project, pegged to cost $1.5 billion back in 2004, is now expected to cost $8 billion.
