“We expect this situation remains unchanged over the next months […],” she told Andina news agency.
The official expressed confidence the mining project would cause a positive impact on copper production and contribute to exporting 400,000 tonnes of the said mineral.
Three of the world’s five largest copper mines are located in Peru; Las Bambas, Cerro Verde and Antamina.
Las Bambas is the country’s largest mining center to date.
