Codelco Moves 2 Big Projects to the ICU

Codelco has decided to reformulate two massive expansion projects that form part of its USD 25 billion investment portfolio in an effort to address some issues regarding their viability and costs. As a result of the review, the company decided to withdraw the environmental impact study for the Andina 244 expansion at its Andina division, perhaps the project in its portfolio facing the biggest challenges in terms of community opposition and water issues. The original USD 6.81 billion project was designed to add 350,000t/y of fine copper production, extending Andina's life of mine for 65 years. However, the project has faced serious opposition from local communities, NGOs and legislators, given its close proximity to capital Santiago, as well as its potential impact on the area's glaciers and water resources. Andina 244 had already been modified in July 2014 to reduce its impact. The revamped project will substantially reduce the investment amount and construction time, and maximize the use of its water resources in order to lower the overall water footprint.
