    Peru will not 'impose' mining projects on communities -prime minister

    The government of new Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra said on Wednesday it would not "impose" mining projects on nearby communities that object to them, but would seek to promote mining investments to take advantage of improved mineral prices. In the past decade, Southern Copper Corp and Newmont Mining Corp have shelved proposed mines in Peru because of opposition from communities worried about the environmental impact - one of the biggest hurdles to building mines in the world's No. 2 copper producer.
