Cusco becomes second region with most formalised mines

The mining formalisation process that began in 2015, experienced an acceleration in the last two years with the formalisation of 738 informal miners in 2019 and 2020. As a result, Cusco has become the second place in the country with most mining formalisation. This implies that more and more miners are following the law and fulfil the technical parameters and environmental standards to ensure adequate practices.
