rP’s Cobre Panama Profiled in Globe & Mail

An important rePlan project, Mina de Cobre Panama, is the subject of a feature article in today’s Globe & Mail. The $6.2-billion project involves one of the largest undeveloped copper deposits in the world. On behalf of Inmet Mining, rePlan prepared and is in the process of implementing a comprehensive Resettlement Action Plan for the project.

In the photo accompanying the article, Jochen Tilk poses with a model of one of our resettlement houses, which are today under construction. The caption is, "Inmet president Jochen Tilk says his company has earned a ‘social licence’ to build Cobre Panama through years of working with local communities. Mr. Tilk is seen with a model home, one of the designs chosen by families who will relocate as the mine is built." Read the whole article here.
