Codelco has restarted production processes at its El Teniente copper mine in China after it was stopped for five days due to heavy rains.

Operations at the underground mine were halted due to problems with infrastructure access personnel and supplies, and interruption to transportation system mineral plants.

During heavy rains, the mine took all necessary measures to reduce any risk to workers and partner companies.
