PERU´S 2018 MINE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS PORTFOLIO 3

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Mining has played a significant role in the country's economic growth in recent years. In
2017, it represented 9.9% of the national GDP, 8.6% of the revenues collected by the
national tax agency SUNAT and 61.8% of the total value of national exports. Evidently,
mining investments play a vital role in the Peruvian economy; therefore, the exploration of
mineral resources and the construction of new projects are encouraged, as the prosperity
of the industry will in hand contribute to the country’s development. Consequently, it is
essential for Peru to have a vision about the potential projects that will contribute to the
development of this activity in the coming years.

This Second Edition of the 2018 Mine Construction Project Portfolio consists of 48 projects,
with a global investment amount of US$ 59,134 billion, registering an increase of US$ 627
million compared to the previous edition.

The increase is due to the incorporation of two new projects, as well as investment
adjustments made by mining companies. Likewise, two mining projects found in the First
Edition were not considered in this edition as they completed the construction phase during
the current year: Ampliacion Marcona (US$ 1,100 billion) and Ampliacion Shahuindo (US$
109 million).

It is worth mentioning that at the end of 2017, US$ 3,780 billion had already been executed
in the development of the 48 projects, leaving US$ 55,354 billion to be invested in the coming
years.

Out of the 48 projects in the portfolio, seven are under construction and it is expected that
one will complete this stage by the end of this year (Ampliacion Toquepala). Six of the
projects began construction in 2018, committing US$ 8,880 billion. Additionally, it is
expected that six projects will begin construction in 2019.

Finally, 24 projects still have no scheduled start date due to factors associated with the
development process of the projects (EIAs and Feasibility Studies in process, additional
explorations, design changes, land acquisition, search for financing or interruption due to
social conflicts).

2.3. INVESTMENTS CONSIDERING


THE ORIGINAL INVESTORS´ COUNTRY
The origin of the investments of the Mine Construction Project Portfolio comes from 11
countries across four continents. In this Edition, the United Kingdom displaces China from
the top position, due to the completion of the Ampliacion Marcona (US$ 1,100 billion), so
the former project is no longer considered in this update. British investments represent
20.2% of investments in the Portfolio with five projects amounting to US$ 11,930 billion,
where Anglo American plc and Rio Tinto plc stand out.

The investments coming from China amount to US$ 10,155 billion from a total of five
projects. Zhongrong Xinda Group Co. Ltd. owns 100% of the Pampa de Pongo project that
is in the detail engineering stage, while Aluminum Corporation of China Overseas Holdings
Limited is financing AmpliacionToromocho that began construction in June of this year.

In third place, with a 15.3% share, Canada has the largest number of Portfolio projects
according to the origin of the investments, among which are Haquira from First Quantum
Minerals Ltd. (US$ 1,860 billion), Cañariaco (Norte) of Candente Copper Corp. (US$ 1,600
billion) and Cotabambas of Panoro Minerals Ltd. (US$ 1,533 billion).

On the other hand, Mexican investments constitute 15.1% of the Portfolio. Of the five
projects with investments of Mexican origin, four of them belong to Grupo Mexico S.A.B. of
C.V whose operator in Peru is Southern Peru Copper Corporation, Peruvian Branch.

2.4. INVESTMENTS ACCORDING TO THE TYPE OF


PROJECT
According to the type of project, they can be classified as either greenfield, which includes
tailings reuse, and brownfield projects. Greenfield projects usually refer to new mine projects
while brownfield projects are divided into expansion projects and replacement projects.

On one hand, 89% of the investments correspond to greenfield projects. In the Portfolio, 38
new mining projects are registered with an investment of US$ 52,368 billion, which
represents 88%. According to investment amount, projects such as: Quellaveco (US$ 5,300

General Department of Mining Promotion and Sustainability


PERU´S 2018 MINE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS PORTFOLIO 12

billion), La Granja (US$ 5,000 billion) and Conga (US$ 4,800 billion) stand out. On the other
hand, there is only one tailings reuse project, Relaves B2 San Rafael with US$ 200 million.

Regarding the brownfield projects, they represent the remaining 11% of the global
investment with 9 projects. The five expansion projects amount US$ 3,137 billion, among
them are: Ampliacion Toquepala project (US$ 1,255 billion) close to completing its
construction work and Ampliacion Toromocho project (US$ 1,355 billion) both began
construction in June 2018 with an estimated start date of operation in 2020.

As for the replacement projects, there are four with an investment of US$ 3,630 billion.
Yanacocha Sulfuros and Quecher Main, both projects undertaken by Minera Yanacocha
S.R.L amounting up to US$ 2,400 billion and will be developed in the footprint of the current
Yanacocha mining unit in Cajamarca. While, Optimizacion Lagunas Norte (US$ 639.8
million) is a project of technological optimization and Integracion Coroccohuayco whose
official name is "Antapaccay Project, Ampliacion Tintaya, Integracion Coroccohuayco"

2.5. INVESTMENTS ACCORDING


TO THE PROJECT PROGRESS STAGE
According to the progress, seven projects are under construction. Ampliacion Toquepala plans to
complete this stage in November 2018. As for the remaining six projects, construction has begun this
year, so the closest construction goal, after the Ampliacion Toquepala project, is from the Quecher
Main project (US$ 300 million) and Relaves B2 San Rafael (US$ 200 million), scheduled for 2019.

It is noteworthy that in the First Edition of the 2018 Portfolio, the start of operation of three projects
was planned, among which was Ampliacion Toquepala, the other two projects, Ampliacion Marcona
(US$ 1,100 billion) and Ampliacion Shahuindo (US$ 109 million) completed their construction during
the defined period, so they are no longer considered in the update.

Most of the projects selected in the Portfolio use the open pit method, so there are 32 mines
that would be developed using this method, which total US$ 49.650 billion and represent
84% of the total investments. The projects for the exploitation of non-metallic minerals such
as Ampliacion Bayovar (US$ 300 million) and Fosfatos Mantaro (US$ 850 million) use open-
pit mining.

The underground mine method will be used in eight mines with an investment of US$ 2,289
billion and a 4% share. Los Calatos (US$ 655 million), operated by Minera Hampton Peru
S.A.C, is the project with the highest investment value in underground mining.

Additionally, there are five projects that will use both methods, among them Quecher Main
(US$ 300 million) that has already completed the construction of an underground tunnel and
Integracion Coroccohuayco (US$ 590 million) that will use elements from the Tintaya mining
unit.

Finally, Macusani (US$ 800 million) and Racaycocha Sur (US$ 1,000 billion) have not yet
defined which of the two methods will be used. While, Relaves B2 San Rafael, as it is a
tailings reuse project does not apply any of the conventional methods.

2.7. INVESTMENTS ACCORDING TO THE STATUS OF


THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT
According to the status of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which is an Environmental
Management Instrument (IGA), 22 projects already have approval from the competent entity,
amounting to US$ 25,112 billion with a 42% participation.

Regarding the Integracion Coroccohuayco´s EIA (US$ 590 million), it is under evaluation and the
mining owner is coordinating with the National Service of Environmental Certification for Sustainable
Investments (SENACE, for its Spanish acronym).

The projects that are currently preparing their EIA are six with an investment amount of US$ 5,765
billion, which represents 10% of the global investment value. Zafranal (US$ 1,157 billion) stands out
in this group for its investment to be executed; the project operator plans to finish the EIA in the first
quarter of 2019.

The investment amount of the 19 projects that have not yet submitted nor are preparing the EIA,
amounts to US$ 27,667 billion.

2.8. INVESTMENTS ACCORDING


TO THE ORE TO BE EXTRACTED
The main ore to extract is copper, 27 of the 48 projects have this metal as its most important
product, and the sum of these projects is US$ 42.196 billion. Ariana (US$ 125 million), Mina
Justa (US$ 1,600 billion) and Quellaveco (US$ 5,300 billion) are copper projects that are
already under construction.

The second ore to extract is gold, the portfolio includes 7 gold projects that represent 12%
of the global investment. As an example, San Gabriel (Ex Chucapaca) will contribute with
150,000 fine ounces of gold. Currently, there are only two iron projects which are Pampa de
Pongo (US$ 2,200 million) and Hierro Apurimac (US$ 2,900 million), together represent a
9% share.

At the same time, the phosphate project Bayovar 12 (US$ 167.7 million) has increased, ,
which is why the Portfolio currently includes four projects with a global investment of US$
2,149 billion. As for the zinc, silver, uranium/lithium and tin projects, they have a distribution
percentage of 5% as a whole, with a total of eight projects.

3.2. PROJECTION OF INVESTMENTS FOR 2018-2021


The projection of investments for the 2018-2021 period amounts to US$ 13,893 billion,
representing 23.5% of the global amount of investments foreseen in the portfolio. These
estimates do not include the investments for sustaining and optimizing current operations,
nor exploration investments.

In 2018, an investment of US$ 1,311 billion is expected, representing 9.4% of the total
investments to be made in the 2018-2021 period. This year, one project will be finalizing its
construction, whilst six others will commence. It is noteworthy that two projects from the
previous edition, Ampliacion Marcona and Ampliacion Shahuindo, have completed the
construction phase during this year.

In 2019, an investment of US$ 3,043 billion is projected, meaning a growth of 132.1%


compared to the previous year. This substantial increase is estimated as result of the
expectation of higher disbursements from companies that have started construction in 2018
such as Quellaveco, Mina Justa, Ampliacion Toromocho, among others. Likewise, six
projects are expected to begin construction.

Thus, in the year 2020 the positive trend continues with US$ 4,751 billion, meaning a growth
of 56.1% compared to the previous year. Although, only three projects will start construction
in said year, they have a joint global investment of US$ 5,457 billion that would be executed
by 2023. In addition, the sustained growth of annual investments in large projects would
support this result.

Finally, an investment of US$ 4,787 billion is expected in 2021, representing 34.5% of the
period. Although, there is a slight increase of 0.8% compared to the previous year, said year
will see the investment consolidation of large projects by their beginning of operations.
Additionally, it is expected to have committed the investment of 15 projects, which together
with the joint investment in projects that are under construction in 2018 (Ampliacion
Toquepala, Quecher Main, Relaves San Rafael, Ampliacion Toromocho, Ariana, Mina Justa
and Quellaveco) and the investment made in the development of the projects that will end
construction this year (Ampliacion Marcona and Ampliacion Shahuindo Fase II), would
represent a global investment of more than US$ 21,000 billion by 2021.

3.3. INVESTMENTS PROJECTION AFTER 2021


The projection of investments in projects as of the year 2022 amounts to US$ 41,461 billion,
representing 70.1% of the global amount of investments. In 2022 the start of construction of
two projects is estimated: Magistral and Michiquillay that would commit an investment of
US$ 2,980 billion. Likewise, there are US$ 30,709 billion corresponding to 24 projects that
have not yet defined a construction start date.

IV. CHANGES RECORDED IN THE PORTFOLIO


In this chapter, a comparison of the current portfolio will be made in relation to the First
Edition of the Mine Construction Projects Portfolio published on March 1, 2018 in order to
observe its evolution. To do this, the changes occurred compared to the previous edition will
be analyzed.

The total investment of the Second Edition of the project portfolio amounts to US$ 59,134
billion, considering 48 projects located in 17 regions of the country. This means a total
increase of the estimated global investment of US$ 627 million compared to the US$ 58,507
billion considered in the first edition.

COMPARISON OF THE MINE PROJECT PORTFOLIO (1st and 2nd Edition)

Below is a list of the main changes that have taken place.

1. The implementation of two of the three projects planned for this year in the previous
edition was carried out. It should be noted that the total investment in the construction
of the Ampliacion Marcona project was US$ 1,100 billion, less than the US$ 1,300
billion anticipated in the previous edition. Thus, this investment, added to the
investment made in the completion of the Ampliacion Shahuindo project of US$ 109
million, was excluded in this publication.
2. Six projects began construction in 2018, thus committing a total investment of US$
8,880 billion. The projects are: Extension Toromocho, Quecher Main, Relaves B2
San Rafael, Quellaveco, Ariana and Mina Justa.
3. Additionally, two projects were incorporated in the current edition: Yanacocha
Sulfuros and Bayovar 12, which have a total investment of US$ 2,100 billion and
US$ 168 million, respectively.
4. The Ampliacion La Arena project (phase II) was eliminated as in the previous edition,
data from the La Arena II mining project was mistakenly considered; this project is
still in a conceptual phase.
5. Out of the 48 projects, there are 32 projects that have not changed their investment
amount.
6. There are 14 projects that modified their investment amounts, representing a
difference of US $ 102 million, among which are:

General Department of Mining Promotion and Sustainability


PERU´S 2018 MINE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS PORTFOLIO 20

✓ Ampliacion Toromocho, which went from an investment of US$ 1,300 billion to US$
1,355 billion, since the company has determined that the project will be of greater
magnitude, requiring a greater investment.
✓ Similarly, the overall Quellaveco project investment increased from US$ 4,882 to
US$ 5,300 billion, increasing by 9%. Likewise, Mina Justa went from US$ 1,348
billion to US$ 1,600 billion, raising the investment amount by 19%.
✓ The total investment of the Quechua project amounted to US$ 1,290 billion,
increasing by 52% compared to the amount registered in the previous edition; as
result of an updated carried out according to the information reported by the company
operating the project in its Monthly Statistical Declaration.
✓ Macusani, increased its global investment amount from US$ 300 to US$ 800 million
as a result of the discovery of the potential lithium deposit and the development of
new explorations.

ANNEX 1: METHODOLOGY
Coverage
The Mine Construction Project Portfolio includes projects aimed at developing and/or
constructing a mine, either new or for tailings reuse (greenfield) and expansion or
replacement of existing ones (brownfield). In addition, these projects are owned by private
companies of large and medium-scale mining and include both metallic and non-metallic
minerals.

The Portfolio only includes those projects whose global amount of investment exceeds 70
million dollars and which are, at least, in the pre-feasibility stage, and there is already a
greater degree of certainty about mineral resources, after having carried out the exploration
and cubing of reserves. In addition, it considers projects whose start of construction is
foreseen in the next ten years.

It should be noted that the investment amounts, start dates of construction, start of operation
(start-up) and other data are compilations from different sources and estimates made by the
General Department of Mining Promotion and Sustainability of the Ministry of Energy and
Mines, so that does not compromise -in any way- the companies that own the projects.

Characteristics of the projects


1.1 Type of project

This characteristic provides information about the productive purpose of the project, its
categories are the following:

• New projects: These are projects that start from scratch, having to settle in a new
geographical space, establish ties with nearby communities, obtain all permits and develop
all the necessary infrastructure. By using geographic spaces, resources and new facilities,
these types of projects are classified as "greenfield".

• Expansion projects: These are projects that seek to expand current productive capacity,
in order to reduce costs or due to the fall of mineral resource laws. They are developed in
the same place and in parallel to the productive process in progress, for this reason, this
type of project is classified as "brownfield".

• Replacement projects: These are projects that seek to maintain current productive
capacity with new mining developments, due to the fall of laws and / or the depletion of
mineral reserves in the exploitation sectors. These projects are classified as "brownfield".

• Reutilization projects: These are projects whose purpose is the reuse of tailings. These
projects involve the development of new infrastructure and the use of new spaces, which is
why they are classified as "greenfield".

Progress
This characteristic provides information about the current situation of the project and what
stage of development it is in, its categories are:

General Department of Mining Promotion and Sustainability


PERU´S 2018 MINE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS PORTFOLIO 22

• Pre-feasibility: Category assigned to those projects that have started the preparation of
their pre-feasibility study or have completed them before the feasibility stage begins. At this
stage, there is already a greater degree of certainty about mineral resources, after having
carried out the exploration and cubing of reserves.

• Feasibility: Category assigned to those projects that have begun the feasibility studies
until they have finished but have not yet made the investment decision.

• Detail engineering: Category assigned to those projects that have investment approval
and that are preparing basic and detailed engineering studies.

• Construction: Category assigned to those projects that have all the necessary permits
and that have started the construction and /or development of the mine until before the start-
up or start of operations.

1.2. Status of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

This characteristic provides information on the status of the detailed Environmental Impact
Assessment (DEIA), an instrument without which no project can start the construction of a
mine. The DEIA can be in one of these statuses:

• Not submitted: Means that the project does not have EIA.

• In preparation: It means that the project owner has communicated to SENACE the start
of the preparation of the EIA.

• In evaluation: It means that the preparation of the EIA was completed and is being
evaluated by SENACE.

• Approved: Means that the EIA successfully completed the evaluation stage and was
approved.

Sources of information
The information contained in the Portfolio is a compilation of diverse sources made by the
General Department of Mining Promotion and Sustainability of the Ministry of Energy and
Mines. In case there are differences between the data from different sources, the data is
taken from the most reliable source, in the following order of priorities:

1. Pre-feasibility studies, feasibility and detailed engineering.

2. Reports to shareholders, quarterly and annual reports, and financial reports.

3. Environmental Impact Assessment, Mining Plan, Mine Closure Plan and Authorization of
Benefit Concession.

4. Official presentations made by the company that owns the project. Books, articles,
magazines, web pages and other specialized media.

The La Granja project is considered one of the largest developed copper deposits in the world. In this regard, according to the contract signed between
Rio Tinto and the Peruvian government, the mining company undertook to deliver a Feasibility study by the end of 2016, otherwise the contract would
be valid. However, the Peruvian government signed an addendum to said contract in order to correct the aforementioned term, extending it for ten
more years, since certain metallurgical problems (arsenic) have not yet been resolved.

The Los Chancas project will be a combined ESDE operation, which is a state-of-the-art technology with the highest international environmental
standards. The deposit has copper, molybdenum and gold. According to the studies, they are analyzing whether it is more convenient to process the
minerals through leaching, which is a cheaper and low initial capital process (CAPEX) but where molybdenum or gold is not recovered, or if the flotation
option is chosen, alternative where the 3 metals can be recovered, but the initial capital will be higher.

Additional data of the project:


The company culminated with the Feasibility study in 2011. This study indicates that economically viable development could be possible if copper
prices remain above an adequate average. In turn, this argues that mineral reserves have been smaller and Construction costs higher than estimates,
which makes it necessary to evaluate the potential of nearby deposits and improve costs.

produce commercial grade concentrate. In this way, the project aims to become an opportunity to sustain the production of the San Rafael mining unit
as well as local employment and social investment in Antauta and Ajoyani. The project will be a modern mining model that transforms an old deposit
into a positive impact, which allows maintaining tin production without exploiting more ore and without generating negative impacts to the environment.

The conflicts over the Tía María project are based on the residents' concern regarding the impacts on the area and the use of water. However, the
company has indicated that the leaching process will not generate any type of environmental risk, since the soil will be waterproofed and protected by
geomembranes. In addition, said project will use ESDE technology, in such a way that its plants will not require a smelting process and, consequently,
there will be no emission into the atmosphere. On the subject of water, Southern Copper discarded the use of the Tambo river basin as its source in
its EIA and offered a solution through the use of desalinated seawater.
