The takeover battle for the Canadian company that owns the Rosemont Mine site hits a climactic moment in Vancouver, B.C. today (Tuesday, April 29).

Officials of Augusta Resource Corp. and Hudbay Minerals Inc. will argue over whether the British Columbian government should put a halt to a shareholders rights plan that Augusta approved a year ago in an effort to make it easier for the company to fend off a hostile takeover offer. The discussion will come at a public hearing of the British Columbia Securities Commission, which regulates the trading of stock owned by B.C.-based companies such as Augusta.

The meeting comes only three days before Augusta shareholders are scheduled to discuss whether to extend the rights plan, which was created in part to try to head off a Hudbay takeover effort -- which Hudbay launched in February of this year anyway.

In fact, in its proposal to the B.C. securities body, it attached a graphic saying that Augusta has now pushed back the date at which it expects to get all needed permits 11 times since its seven year push to get the mine approved began in 2007.
