Codelco suspends construction of its New Level Mine project

As part of the measures to face the COVID-19 health emergency that affects the country, Codelco announced the suspension of construction of its New Level Mine project in The Lieutenant Division. The transitory demobilization, which affects the Andes Norte, Diamante, Andesita and Recursos Norte projects, had already begun to be implemented since last weekend, encompassing a total of 4,500 fewer people on the job, precisely with the aim of lowering the density of its own staff and to reduce the possibility of contagion.
