Canadian mining company Teck Resources has recently announced that Compania Minera Antamina, in which the company has a 22.5 percent interest along with BHP Billiton (33.75 percent), Glencore (33.75 percent) and Mitsubishi Corporation (10 percent), has resumed operations at its copper and zinc Antamina mine in Peru. In the coming days, the company is planning to work at 80 percent of full capacity, with a gradual ramp-up to full production expected in the third quarter. As SteelOrbis reported previously, in the middle of April production was suspended in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition to copper and zinc, Antamina mine produces molybdenum as a by-product, which is used as feedstock in the production of ferromolybdenum (FeMo).
