Nexa resumes operations at Atacocha

Nexa Resources said it has resumed operations to normal capacity at its Atacocha San Gerardo open pit mine in Peru after protests by the Joraonivoc community ceased.

The miner’s estimated zinc production loss of 0.1 kilotons is expected to be recovered in the upcoming month. 

“Nexa remains committed to the social development of its host communities and will continue to pursue an active dialogue with the local community and its members,” the miner said. 

Including Atacocha, Nexa owns and operates five long-life mines, three in the central Andes region of Peru, and two in Brazil. The miner is also ramping up its sixth operation, Aripuanã, in the state of Mato Grosso in Brazil.
