Copper, zinc, and lead minerals float in giant refining tubs at Cerro Lindo mine near Chincha
Copper, zinc, and lead minerals being processed into concentrates float in giant refining tubs at the Cerro Lindo mine of Peruvian mining company Milpo near Chincha February 19, 2008. Fresh water is an increasingly scarce resource in Peru, where most of the population lives along the desert coast. Rivers can be erratic and the glaciers in the Andes are melting because of global warming. Milpo has installed Peru's first water desalinization plant, which takes water out of the Pacific Ocean and then pumps it up 6,000 feet into the Andes, where the purified water runs through Milpo's sprawling new Cerro Lindo mine and provides water to the mining town's 700 workers, who mine copper, zinc, and lead.
