Lundin halts zinc expansion project

Miningmagazine - The Portuguese project was previously on track for completion of construction, commissioning and a phased start-up beginning in the June quarter. The company, which was aiming to wrap the project in 2020, did not indicate when work could begin again.

Lundin said it had been actively monitoring COVID-19 since early January, and had already put plans for illness management and response into place at each of its operations. Included in those measures: travel restrictions, surveillance and monitoring, and a response plan.

Specifically, to reduce the risk of exposure and outbreak, it outlined health screenings of contractors, visitors and employees, limiting visitors to only those considered business critical. It will also undertake constant assessments of the situation as it evolves.

"Employees or contractors who have had incidental contact or exposure to someone who has been diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus, as well as those who have travelled internationally, have been instructed to stay at home for 14 days regardless of whether they are showing symptoms," Lundin officials said.

Despite its implemented plans, the miner confirmed that it was notified March 14 that a single employee of its Candelaria operation in Chile had tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The unnamed individual, who had vacationed abroad, returned to the Atacama region but has not been to work nor the mine site since returning to Chile.
