The Tia Maria mine is a large copper mine located in the south of Peru in Moquegua Region. The project is operated by Southern Copper Corporation with Newmont Mining Corporation owning a share. In 2011, there were protests against the project which led to the death of three people. Concern about the impact on agriculture led the project to be put on hold. A revised Environmental Impact Assessment by Geoservice Ingeniería for Southern Copper Corporation was approved in August, 2014. The construction permit is pending. A new round of farmer-led protests began in March 2015 and have already taken five lives in more than 60 days of regional strikes. On May 23 the state proclaimed a state of emergency for Islay province, in the south of the country. Farmers fear the project will contaminate the River Tambo vital for their rice crops.
