Report summary

El Romeral is a small sized 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 a owned subsidiary, Compañía Minera del Pacífico (CMP). Ore from the mine is used to produce lump, fines and concentrate products for both the domestic and exports markets.In 2015, El Romeral completed its Phase V expansion to lift production capacity. This expansion involves mining lower grade material with a higher waste content, both of which resulting in El Romeral being the most expensive mine in CAP's portfolio after El Algarrobo's closure.
