Report summary

El Romeral is a small surface mine in the Coquimbo region of Chile, situated roughly 470 kilometres north of Santiago near the city of La Serena. 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). The mine produces fines and concentrate products for the export market. In 2015, El Romeral completed its Phase V expansion which lifted the mine's production capacity. This expansion involves mining lower-grade ores with higher waste contents, both of which contributing for El Romeral to be the most expensive mine in CAP's portfolio, after El Algarrobo's closure.
