Project Details


The project would build a rail line from the Las Bambas copper mine to the port in Marcona. In addition to Las Bambas, various other copper mines are planned to enter into production in the coming years, including Haquira developed by First Quantum Minerals Ltd, Los Chancas belonging to Southern Copper, Panoro Minerals Ltd's Cotabambas and Trapiche developed by Buenaventura. Therefore, a train is considered to be the most efficient way to transport large amounts of copper concentrates to the coast for export.
