Report summary

Los Colorados is a medium sized surface mine situated in the Atacama region of Chile roughly 30 kilometres northwest of the city of Vallenar. 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). Ore from the mine is used to produce fines and concentrate as well as both direct reduction (DR) and blast furnace (BF) pellets for export and domestic use.The mine has the highest strip ratio among all of CAP's mines which negatively impacts its mining costs.
