Anglo American PLC said Monday that a Chilean environmental watchdog has recommended that the permitting application for the Los Bronces Integrated Project in Chile be rejected.

The South African miner said the project received confirmation from Chile's Environmental Assessment Service Regulator (SEA) that the application met all required environmental criteria, but that the SEA alleged there was a lack of information in relation to public health risks.

Anglo American said it believes it provided all appropriate information throughout the evaluation process and added that a decision on the project's permit application by the SEA is expected to come next week.

The company has left its copper production guidance for 2022 and 2023 unchanged.
