Peru: the brand new Toromocho copper mine ordered to stop polluting local lake

Here’s the video:
The enviro control bodies in Peru aren’t very happy with the way in which Chinese capitals Toromocho is going about its business, even in these early days of the big copper mine. Between March 16th and 20th they witnessed how the company is letting polluted water run striaght into the local lagoons (you can see it all above, as straightforward a case as can be imagined) and now the company has been ordered to stop work until it has its enviro act together.

UPDATE: According to reports today, Toromocho has complied with the enviro order and stopped the discharge.
