Anglo American restarting Los Bronces mine operations in Chile

|About: Anglo American plc (AAUKF)|By:, SA News Editor

Anglo American (AAUKF, AAUKY) says it is restarting operations at its Los Bronces copper mine in Chile following violent protests earlier this week that had caused it to halt operations.

Los Bronces, in the Andes mountains, produced more than 416K tons of copper last year, ~7% of Chile's overall output; Anglo says its other mines in Chile are operating normally.

Meanwhile, platinum producers including Amplats (AGPPY, AGPPF) say a strike now in its ninth week at their South African mines is causing irreparable damage to the sector and local economy.
