Our Cerro Corona mine in Peru is about to test trucks powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas), one of the least polluting fuels used by heavy transport vehicles. The first truck will use the fuel in March on the route from Cerro Corona to the Salaverry Port, from where our gold-copper concentrate is shipped to smelters in Asia.

"We are looking at energy sources that are more environmentally friendly. Once the test runs have been completed we will decide on whether to roll this out the rest of the fleet," says Alfredo Román, Cerro Corona’s Energy Management Manager.
