Collahuasi copper mine in Chile set to resume operations after earthquake

|By:, SA News Editor

Normal operations are expected to resume by day's end at Anglo American (AAUKF, AAUKY) and Glencore's (GLCNF, GLNCY) Collahuasi copper mine in Chile after a major earthquake forced a production shutdown.

Collahuasi produced 445K metric tons of copper content last year and accounts for nearly 6% of Chile's overall output.

The rest of Anglo American's operations in Chile, mostly located further south, weren't affected by the earthquake.

Southern Copper (SCCO) said last night its mining operations in the country continued normally.
