BHP’s Cerro Colorado copper mine in Chile to scale down operations

Global miner BHP has announced that it would begin to scale down activity at its small Cerro Colorado copper mine in Chile amidst the pandemic. BHP said the new plan would mean a gradual reduction in staff that would begin this year and span the coming four months. The company said it would continue to “look for medium and long-term alternatives that would allow it to extend its mining operation beyond 2023.”
