Report summary

Cerro Negro Norte is a mid-sized mine in the Atacama region of Chile, situated approximately 700 kilometres north of Santiago and near the city of Copiapó. It is majority owned by the vertically integrated Chilean steel producer Compañía de Acero del Pacífico (CAP) and operated by an owned subsidiary, Compañía Minera del Pacífico (CMP). Due to the lack of water in the area, CAP has been forced to build a desalination plant and pump water back to the mine site, so that the ore can be processed and beneficiated. This has not only lifted the operating cost of the project but has also added an additional layer of technical difficulty to the mine's operations.
