Normal operations resume at MMG's Las Bambas mine after blockade removal

MMG Ltd. said normal operations resumed at its Las Bambas copper mine in Peru, after the recent removal of road blockades that had threatened production at the site.

Earlier in October, the company flagged a possible stoppage due to copper shipments being delayed as a result of roadblocks set up along a national road by local communities in late September.

The Peruvian government declared a 30-day state of emergency in the wake of anti-mining protests, allowing the armed forces and police to intervene and remove the blockades in mid-October.

MMG said Oct. 24 that inbound and outbound logistics at Las Bambas have been fully restored, with production returning to normal levels following the delivery of critical supplies, and that it supports regional forums to resolve community demands.

In the third quarter, MMG's copper concentrate output rose 12% year over year to 97,369 tonnes, while copper cathode output dropped 11% to 18,495 tonnes.
