In June 2013, a Peruvian Glencore Xstrata subsidiary (33.75%), the Antamina copper mine, was fined $77,000 for spilling 45 tons of toxic slurry into the neighboring community of Cajacay. The spill, which occurred in July 2012, caused extreme damage to the environment and poisoned around 350 residents, many of whom were children. Local inhabitants were considering taking legal action against the Antamina mine.
