(“Goldcorp” or the “Company”) (NYSE:GG) and certain of its officers.   The class action, filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and docketed under 16-cv-08123, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Goldcorp securities between March 31, 2014  and August 24, 2016 inclusive (the “Class Period”).  This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).

Goldcorp engages in the acquisition, exploration, development, and operation of precious metal properties in Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Central and South America. The Company primarily explores for gold, silver, lead, zinc, and copper.  Among the Company's properties is the Peñasquito gold-silver-lead-zinc mine (the “Peñasquito Mine”), located in north-central Mexico.  The Peñasquito Mine is considered by Goldcorp to be a material mineral property.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects.  Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:  (i) levels of the mineral selenium had risen in one groundwater monitoring well near the Peñasquito Mine as early as October 2013; (ii) in October 2014, Goldcorp reported a rise in selenium levels in groundwater to the Mexican government after the contamination near the Peñasquito Mine waste facility intensified; (iii) in August 2016, Goldcorp told Mexican regulators that contaminated water had also been found in other areas near the Peñasquito Mine; and (iv) that as a result of the foregoing, Goldcorp’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On August 24, 2016, Reuters published an article reporting that Mexican regulators were examining whether Goldcorp broke any regulations in its handling of a long-running leak of contaminated water at the Peñasquito Mine.

On this news, Goldcorp’s share price fell $1.64, or approximately 9%, to close at $16.05 on August 24, 2016, damaging investors.
