Canadian, Australian miners to de-risk Bifox phosphate project

Canada’s Lara Exploration reported that Australia’s Bifox (previously known as Phillips River Mining), has completed agreements with the Chilean Government to settle outstanding environmental infractions and fines and lift the embargo on mining and processing at the Bifox phosphate project, located near the town of Copiapó in northern Chile. Bifox has also begun the application process with the Servicio Nacional de Geología y Minería to reinstate its operating permits and resume mining and production at an initial rate of 5,000 tonnes per month, ramping up over time to 20,000 tonnes per month.
