FILE - In this Nov. 2, 2012 file photo, provided by Stillwater County News, two rail cars bring 30 tons of muck out of the Stillwater Mining Co. mine in Nye, Mont. In February 2013, former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer is partnering with a New York hedge fund to launch a proxy battle for control of Stillwater, a precious metals mining company that’s been criticized for sinking millions of dollars into foreign acquisitions. Drawing parallels with Montana’s Anaconda Mining Company, a copper industry giant that cratered after much of its foreign assets were taken over by the Chilean government, Schweitzer says he’s intervening to save Stillwater from a similar fate owing to questionable investments in copper in Argentina and platinum in Canada.
