Hudbay Minerals has announced that in accordance with Peru’s Consulta Previa law additional consultation between the Peruvian government and the local community of Chilloroya has been completed with community support. Upon completion of the process the Peruvian regulators granted Hudbay the final mining permit for the development and operation of the Pampacancha deposit. The company is working toward completion of the remaining individual land user agreements to allow for full site access for development at Pampacancha. The company has started limited pre-development activities including haul road construction and site preparation work.
Hudbay President and CEO Peter Kukielski says this milestone demonstrates the strong relationships with their local communities and they are grateful for their support as they pursue the development of Pampacancha for the benefit of all their stakeholders.
