The performance awards and restricted awards are granted under the LTIP which the Antofagasta group (the "Group") has established to reward senior executives in a way that aligns the interests of LTIP participants with the interests of shareholders and with the Group's long-term strategic plan. The One Off Award has been granted to Mr Hernández for the same purpose, but by reference to metrics which are specific to his role as Chief Executive Officer of Antofagasta Minerals S.A. Directors of the Company are not eligible to participate in the LTIP or the One Off Award. Awards granted under the LTIP and the One Off Award are conditional rights to receive a cash payment by reference to the number of Shares relating to the relevant award which vest. The cash payment is determined by reference to the market value of the Shares at vesting. No Shares are issued to participants in the LTIP or the One Off Award. No consideration was paid for the grant of any awards. Vesting of LTIP Awards Performance awards are subject both to certain performance conditions which are measured over a three year period (2012-2014) and to continued employment.

Restricted awards are subject to continued employment and will normally vest as to one third in January 2013, as to a further third in January 2014 and as to the final third in January 2015. As the PDMR listed above was only appointed to his current role part way through the year, the payments that he will receive under the performance awards and the payment that he will receive under the first tranche of restricted awards will be pro-rated accordingly.
