Chile’s Codelco wants arbitration with Ecuador over Llurimagua project

Codelco said it had requested international arbitration with Ecuador and its National Mining Company (Enami EP) over the Llurimagua project. Llurimagua could become the first mine Codelco operates abroad following years of scattershot efforts to expand internationally. The project, about 50 miles (80 km) northeast of Ecuador’s capital of Quito, has faced resistance from a nearby community over environmental concerns.
