Minera Chinalco Peru constitutes part of Callao Conveyor Consortium, which also includes the following companies: Cormin Callao, Perubar S.A., Company Minera El Brocal S.A.A. and Santa Sofia ports S.A.A.
In order to improve the efficiency of mineral exportation, and to ensure the protection of the environment and the population of Callao, Minera Chinalco has backed the initiative that will allow innovation in the transport of minerals.
The project consists of the construction of a loading terminal at the port north of Callao, and the implementation of a new process of transferring minerals, which will travel through a tubular air-tight conveyer beginning on the premises of Ferrovías Central Andina S.A. and terminating at the port where the product will be downloaded into the ships’ holds.
The conveyer will operate at a rate of 2 thousand tons per hour and will transport the concentrate in way which isolates it from the surrounding area, thereby protecting the environment.
