Peru: Fewer dead miners in 2014

Let us be clear, 32 is still 32 too many. But still, the figure of 32 fatalities from accidents in the Peru mining industry in 2014 is a clear improvement on what we’ve seen before. A stat that should be lauded and marked improvement that should be further encouraged.
However let’s also note a couple of the worst offenders last year, as Buenaventura (BVN) saw five deaths at their mines, Milpo saw four deaths and Southern Copper (SCCO) saw three deaths. Hopefully a bit of name’n’shame will get those three to buck up their ideas. Data from here.
