Goldmans Sells Shares in response to the recent collapse of a massive gold mine in Kazakhstan.

Goldman Sachs said it will pay $1,9 billion to sell its GoldShares ETF and to buy back the same amount in an initial public offering, a deal that could raise as much as $1 trillion for investors.

Goldmans said it is also setting aside $1 billion in cash for the sale of shares and $1 million to cover claims by some investors for lost profits and lost investment opportunities.

GoldMan said it expects the sale to close within a week.
