OCATED ON SOUTH AMERICA’S WEST COAST,
Peru is one of the world’s largest mining
producers and is considered among the top
ten richest mineral countries in the world.
Abundant deposits of copper, gold, silver, lead and
zinc are mainly found in the Highlands region
(incorporating the Andean Mountain Range),
however despite the high level of mining activity in
the region, recent statistics suggest that current
production rates are nominal with regard to the
country’s unexplored mineral prospects.
Mining is the driving force behind Peru’s economy
with mineral exports accounting for around 60% of
the country’s total exports. This, combined with the
Peruvian Government’s ‘pro-mining investment’ stance
continues to offer enormous business potential for
mining equipment and services companies like
Bradken with an interest in the region.
For all the aforementioned reasons Peru has been
and will continue to be a strategic focus for Bradken
with our presence in the region spearheaded by the
ongoing relationship between our Mineral
Processing Division and the country’s premier
mining operation, the Antamina copper mine.
