Fire affects plant at Chilean Antofagasta’s Centinela copper mine

Antofagasta said that a fire affected a plant at its Centinela copper mine in northern Chile on Wednesday night, but underscored that nobody was injured and that production would not be impacted.
The fire affected the electrowinning unit of Centinela’s hydrometallurgy plant and was extinguished minutes after it started, Antofagasta said in a statement on Thursday.
