Appeals Court Rules in Favor of Antofagasta Minerals
Apr 23 15
A Chilean court of appeals has ruled unanimously in favor of Antofagasta Minerals over the El Mauro tailings dam of its Los Pelambres mine in northern Coquimbo region (IV). The La Serena court of appeals rejected a lawsuit filed by the residents of the town of Caimanes that claimed the tailings dam was unsafe. The El Mauro tailings dam is at the center of a dispute between the company and residents of Caimanes, who claim it has dried up a local stream and contaminated underground aquifers. The company is also waiting to hear a decision on a separate lawsuit filed in the La Serena court, after a lower court ruling ordered the partial or complete demolition of the dam's wall.
Local Judge Orders Antofagasta about the Complete or Partial Demolition of the Dam's Wall
Mar 10 15
A local judge ordered the complete or partial demolition of the dam's wall, citing the failure to comply with an October supreme court ruling ordering the Antofagasta to revamp the tailings dam so it would not cut off water to the local village of Caimanes. According to the supreme court ruling, the tailings dam has infiltrated underground aquifers and blocked the normal water course of the Pupo creek that supplies water to Caimanes. The company said it will appeal the lower court's decision, as the judge issued its ruling without waiting for a report from the national water authority that the judge himself had commissioned.
