MMG is deeply concerned that a community member has died and a number of Police have been injured as the result of a community conflict.  The conflict occurred between the community and National Police in Pumamarca, 20 kilometres from the Las Bambas operation in Peru.

The incident is currently being investigated by Peruvian authorities.  

Las Bambas, operated by MMG, is committed to ongoing development and dialogue with communities in the area surrounding the operation, including through the National government supported dialogue process.  

Las Bambas management continue to monitor the situation, with the team focused on ensuring the safety of the people located at site and in the community.

While operations continue, logistics have been temporarily disrupted by ongoing community blockages. 

MMG will provide further updates in relation to material developments.
