Zibo Hongda Unit Plans $1.5 Bln Peru Iron-Ore Mine: Comercio

May 13 (Bloomberg) -- Jinzhao Mining Peru SA, a unit of China’s Zibo Hongda Mining Co., plans to build a $1.5 billion iron-ore mine in Peru by 2016, newspaper El Comercio reported, citing country manager Xiaohuan Tang.

The company aims to produce between 3 million and 5 million metric tons of iron ore a year at its Pampa del Pongo deposit in the southern Andes, the Lima-based newspaper said,

The company, which plans to build its own port and desalination plant, will complete a feasibility study by the end of the year, El Comercio said.

Jinzhao’s office in Lima didn’t immediately answer calls by Bloomberg News seeking comment.
