Diaguita Community Wins at Supreme Court, Halts “El Morro” Mining Project

On Friday, April 27th, Chile’s Supreme Court issued another decision in favor of indigenous peoples. This adds to the list of recent decisions that are slowly advancing in Chile the indigenous right to consultation. This latest decision involved the Comunidad Agrícola los Huasco Altinos and the “El Morro” mining project, owned by Sociedad Contractual Minera El Morro. The decision will halt the large mining project until consultation with the community can take place. The case is the subject of our latest column for I Love Chile News, which you can read here.
