Peruvian mining focuses on technology and human development

2 February 2021

In this Global Platform video, Víctor Gobitz, CEO of Peruvian mining company Antamina, discusses how the industry is leveraging new technologies while prioritising the development of highland communities. These focuses converge to advance the ESG standards of the mining sector.


In the case of Peru, when you compare the human development index in three different regions, in the coastal area we have a higher human development index when you compare with the highlands or the jungle. Mining activities are developed in the highlands where we have a lower human development index, so the development of mining activity is one way to reduce this gap. Also we have to take into account that Peru – in terms of copper production, zinc, lead or gold and silver – is a powerhouse. And that represents, in terms of GDP for our country, 12 to 15 percent.
