Juan Luis Kruger, general manager of the Peruvian mining company Minsur, a subsidiary of Alxar, the mining branch of the Angelini Group, has announced the beginning of construction in Mina Justa, the first mining project for the company outside Chile. This announcement was made two weeks after completing the financing of US$900 million.

“We hope to produce the first cathode and the first copper concentrate by the end of 2020,” Kruger said.

The company expects to generate at least 8,000 jobs as a result of the construction activities in this project.
