Environmental sanctions at El Soldado mine in Chile
The El Soldado copper mine is partly owned by Anglo American, alongside Chilean state-owned company Codelco and Japanese companies Mitsubishi and Mitsui. Chile´s environmental regulator has sanctioned the Anglo American subsidiary for breaching 16 environmental rules with regards to efficient management of reforestation, water supply, wildlife and rainwater. El Soldado’s operations have failed to provide an environmental monitoring plan and conducted mining in areas without permits, subject to local opposition.
