Peru Mining Adjusts to New Water Realities

19 July 2017
Market Insight

Beginning in 2014, Peru has seen a significant shift in its regulation of water management for mining, with an exponential increase in reported violations.

The global mining market’s recovery in 2017 has encouraged several players to move forward with mine expansions that depend on extensions of their existing water strategies – although a selection of projects suggests a shift is underway towards improved water stewardship with over $1.4 billion of investment.

In this Market Insight, Bluefield water experts analyze environmental regulations in Peru and key water management initiatives.
