Anglo American charged for breaching environmental laws in Chile

Chile’s environmental regulator, the SMA,  is bringing charges against mining giant Anglo American’s local division, after inspections conducted last April showed the company breached several environmental laws. According to local newspaper La Segunda, the SMA formalized charges against the whole mining district located in Chile’s Fifth Region last week, not just Anglo American Sur, despite the firm controls most of the mining operations in the area. The other players involved in the area are Mitsubishi, Mitsui, and Chile’s own Codelco.
