Chilean Indigenous Communities File BHP Billiton's Cerro Colorado Mine Works Permit Lawsuit

The continuity of operations at BHP Billiton's Cerro Colorado mine in Chile's Tarapac region (I) is at risk after a lawsuit was filed by indigenous communities. Aymara communities are challenging the issuing of an environmental permit for construction of a channeling system in the Quipisca area. The works are designed to project a local creek from potential mine runoff that could enter it during heavy rain. The channeling is located near the company's Cerro Negro, Norte and Parca dump sites. The USD 6.8 million project obtained environmental approval in May. The communities said that given there are communities that live in the vicinity, the project should have required an environmental impact study (EIS), and therefore in compliance with the International Labor Organization's 169 agreement on indigenous peoples' rights, rather than an environmental impact assessment (EIA). The communities also claimed the project was part of Cerro Colorado's larger expansion project. BHP said the channeling project was not a productive project, but rather a measure to protect the creek and surrounding communities from runoff.
