SGAB was retained by the WWF (NL) to review the EIA of the controversial Newmont/Buenaventura/IFC led Conga AU/Cu project in Cajamarca, Peru. The review found significant weaknesses in the EIA related to both content and process, and proposes how it should be improved. It further identifies the need to perform a strategic environmental and socio-economic study of mining activities in the Cajamarca region. The full report can be downloaded here.2012-04-15
