Mayor's plan to protect area around AngloGold's Quebradona copper project fails

A plan raised by Mayor Jorge Pérez of the Jericó municipality in Colombia's Antioquia department to modify the Territorial Planning Structure and protect the area surrounding the Quebradona copper project owned by AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. failed at the City Council, reported Dec. 30, 2019, citing local media Caracol Radio.

The proposal, which looked to protect 60% of the land around Quebradona by allowing only agricultural activities and banning mining operations, was not approved by the City Council as many councilors did not show up to achieve quorum. Pérez told the local media that AngloGold Ashanti put pressure on city councilors to make them forfeit their votes on the matter, according to the report.

A number of legal procedures were earlier filed against the mining project, but most of them failed to move forward, the report said, adding both the local executive and environmentalist groups have expressed concerns over the possibility of Quebradona polluting the local aquifers.
