Rio Blanco Copper S.A.

[PDF] The company rejects all types of violence and reinforces its respect for human rights

Due to recent news published in the media about alleged human rights violations inside the camp of the former Minera Majaz (in August 2005), RIO BLANCO COPPER S.A. [part of Monterrico Metals, owned by Zijin] announces to national, regional and local authorities and the general public the following: 1. Rio Blanco Copper S.A. is the name of the company under which we have been working since December 2007. It represents the interests of a financial group completely different from those represented by Minera Majaz S.A., which was the owner of the mining project during the time of the deplorable acts mentioned above. 2. We are grateful for the vigilance of the media, other civil institutions and the relevant authorities...and we feel confident that the truth of these acts will be established and judged...
