Minera Candelaria (a Lundin Mining operation)

Minera Candelaria (Candelaria Mining) is the Lundin Mining Corporation's most important operation. This mining complex has established itself as a powerful economic and social driving force in the Atacama Region. It was first to erect and operate a desalination plant in Atacama and signed an agreement with the township of Tierra Amarilla, vowing that their mining and processing operations there would help the community develop economically and socially.

   In November 2014, Lundin Mining acquired 80 percent of Minera Candelaria. Following this transaction, the Candelaria district (consisting of the open pit and North Candelaria, Santos and Alcaparrosa underground mines) became the corporation's most important asset in terms of production and number of workers.

   Lundin Mining is growing via acquisitions in the same way that Candelaria's mining district has. Lundin boasts corporate operational technical support in areas such as risk prevention, environment, resources, planning, processing, and community relations.

   "Candelaria is a leader in the region's mining sector and in the development of social contribution projects," said Mr. Sergio Armstrong, Candelaria's CEO.

   Mr. Armstrong graduated as a Metallurgical Engineer from the University of Concepcion, obtained a postgraduate degree in Human Resource Management at the University of Santiago, and is a graduate of the ESE (Higher Business Studies) Business School's Advanced Management Program from the University of Los Andes. He has been recognized by Chile's Colegio de Profesionales Expertos en Seguridad Minera (College of Professional Mining Security Experts) for his contribution and commitment to preventive safety management.
