Chile’s main mining company increases production despite COVID

Codelco, the world’s largest copper producer said that a resurgence of Covid-19 cases in Chile will not disrupt the supply of the metal. Codelco managed to increase production in the first quarter despite the increase in infections in Chile. “We are this year with an increase in production to date,” said Juan Benavides, Codelco president. In recent years, Codelco has participated in the strongest investment program in the copper industry after decades of underinvestment in its old deposits.
