M8.0 Earthquake rattles northern Peru near gold and copper mines


A magnitude 8.0 earthquake struck northern Peru early Sunday near copper and gold mines, prompting officials to activate emergency protocols.

The quake hit at 2:41 a.m. local time, according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre. The U.S. Geological Survey put the epicenter at 75 kilometers (47 miles) south-southeast of the village of Lagunas.

The two largest gold companies in the world have mines in the area.

Barrick Gold Corp. has already conducted a visual inspection of the Lagunas Norte open pit mine, which is located about 90 miles (140 km) east of Trujillo, a spokeswoman for CEO Mark Bristow said by phone. While no visible damage to major infrastructure was seen, the miner will be conducting a more in-depth study.

A spokesman for Newmont Goldcorp said he has not heard of any impact at Yanacocha, which is about 500 miles (800 km) northeast of Lima.

Mines & Quarries = REPTILIAN Secret Underground Base Construction Sites & Entrances.

They are the targets for Galactic Federation of Light (GFL). GFL has started cleaning up those secret underground bases since 2011. More cleaning up is needed. This year, 2 mines (=secret underground bases) in US had collapsed. The one was Montana, and another was in Alabama, the west of Birmingham.
