Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter presents the main characteristics and trends of the Peruvian mining sector, as well as the legal framework for the mining industry. It reviews the status of exploration and exploitation permits as well as the direct regulation of extraction and processing activities on air and water. It reviews conflict resolution mechanisms with local communities, environmental liability policy and the management of contaminated sites. The chapter discusses efforts to formalise the artisanal mining and avoid local mercury water pollution, which has led Peru to recently ratify the Minamata Convention on Mercury.
