Security guard shot dead at B2Gold Philippine gold project

June 25 (Reuters) - B2Gold Corp, a small Canadian gold mining company, said on Wednesday a security guard at its Masbate gold project in the Philippines had been shot dead by a fellow security employee following an altercation between the two.
