Pedro Castillo: we will attend to the Las Bambas problem as soon as possible

President Pedro Castillo referred to the recent announcement by the Chinese corporation MMG about the halt of its operations at the Las Bambas mine.

“We are going to attend to what the Las Bambas mining company is proposing as soon as possible, as well as what is happening in the jungle, in the north of the country,” said the president from Trujillo during his participation in the 16th Executive Gore.

In addition, he pointed out that businessmen have the “open doors” of the Executive for dialogue. “I make a call to private companies, added to public investment, to this cabinet, that we have to undertake immediate solutions,” he added.

Mimen will continue to build bridges of dialogue

Along the same lines, the head of the Ministry of Energy and Mines, Eduardo González Toro, also spoke about the statement from the corporation that owns Las bambas.

“Let’s hope they reflect and continue working on the welfare of the communities,” he said. He also pointed out that he hopes it is a misunderstanding and that from his office they will continue to build bridges of dialogue to solve social conflicts in the country.

The Las Bambas statement

Through a statement, MMG, majority owner of Las Bambas, announced from Hong Kong that the mine’s operations were halted in the fortnight of December due to the blockade of the Southern Mining Corridor in Cusco.

“As a result of this ongoing lockdown and restriction of inbound and outbound logistics, Las Bambas has been forced to phase out operations at the mine and production will cease in mid-December due to a lack of key consumables (supplies for mining), ”the company wrote.
