Workers at Cerro Colorado Copper Mine Launch Strike

Workers at BHP Billiton's Cerro Colorado copper mine in Chile have launched an indefinite strike following a breakdown in contract negotiations. The union rejected the latest offer of a 1% wage increase by BHP Billiton, which represents nearly 700 people working at Cerro Colorado. Following the strike announcement, all operations at the open-pit mine have come to a halt. The union said in a statement that workers were 'camped out on the road leading to the mine during the first hours of the strike and the production is completely paralyzed'. Located 125km east of the port of Iquique, the mine is wholly owned by BHP Billiton and has capacity to produce 80,000t /year of copper cathode through leaching and electro-winning.
