Peruvian armed forces, police to unblock access to MMG's Las Bambas copper mine

The Peruvian government authorized the intervention of the armed forces and police to unblock access to MMG Ltd.'s Las Bambas copper mine, after the company said that it may have to cease production at the site due to the ongoing protest, Reuters reported.

The report cited the decree published in the country's official newspaper El Peruano, declaring a state of emergency for 30 days in an Andean area where residents have been blocking a road used by the mining company to transport concentrates for almost four weeks.

The measure involves suspending the right to free transit and to hold public meetings in the Andean province in the region of Cusco, a key mining area in Peru.
