‘Ties are strengthened’: Spanish campaigners unite around Atalaya Mining’s London AGM

On Wednesday 27th June, Spanish campaigners attended the AGM of London-listed mining company Atalaya Mining to raise concerns about the company’s operations across Spain.

Atalaya, which is listed on London’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM), is the owner of the Riotinto copper mine in Huelva, Andalusia [not connected to Rio Tinto mining company], and has plans to re-open a copper mine in Touro, Galicia and to explore for zinc near Santander, Cantabria. Each of these projects is subject to criticism and opposition from local residents, community associations and NGOs.
