Codelco said it would restart operations and projects it had previously suspended due to COVID-19. They will begin to implement this next week. The company said that workers will soon return to the new underground portion of its sprawling Chuquicamata mine, and that the company’s smelter and refinery will soon resume operation. Chile’s El Teniente mine is also set to resume operation shortly. The state-run miner included a long list of safety measures it planned to implement to stave off further outbreaks at its operations.
