Codelco halts projects in Antofagasta

As part of the COVID-19 sanitary measures to affect Chile, Codelco will stop construction of all its projects in the Antofagasta region and will operate the Chuquicamata Division only with Calama workers. “This decision will be implemented immediately or as soon as the current shifts end, and will allow for a reduction in the number of trips from other regions and a reduction in the density of its own and collaborating staff,” according to a spokessperson for Codelco.
