On June 11th of this year, the Environment and Ecology Work Group of the Andean, Amazonian, and Afroperuvian People, Environment and Ecology Commission of the Peruvian Congress delivered a report which alleges that the Rio Blanco Project...is illegally occupying part of the lands of the Peasant Communities of Yanta and Segunda y Cajas. This opinion is an incorrect allegation...In response, Rio Blanco Copper S.A. [part of Monterrico Metals, owned by Zijin] wishes to inform the members of Congress, groups opposed to mining activity and the general public that the company does hold legally valid, binding and current rights over the surface lands currently occupied by the company’s mining project, the Rio Blanco Project.
