Peru’s president Ollanta Humala is taking steps to change the mining industry in Peru that will hopefully contribute to reducing mining-related conflicts in the country. Carlos Monge, from the network of Globilisation with Equality, writes in Diario La Primera that “this is a small step with many more steps yet to go if we want to speak of a new mining in Peru”.
Among London-listed mining companies operating in Peru are Anglo American, BHP Billiton, Monterrico Metals, Rio Tinto and Xstrata.
