ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece's top administrative court ruled on Friday that Canada's Eldorado Gold can temporarily resume mining operations in northern Greece until a final ruling is made, court officials said.

Eldorado had appealed to Greece's top court to overturn a ban on its plans to develop a gold mine in a forested area of northern Greece, in a case widely seen as a test of the leftist government's approach to foreign investment.
