Muriel Mining/Rio Tinto at Mande Norte

Anglo-Australian mining giant Rio Tinto has come under intense criticism for its association with a small company called La Muriel Mining in Colombia.

La Muriel was accused of failing to consult Indigenous and Afro-descendant communities adequately at its Mande Norte copper-gold-molybdenum exploration project on the borders of Antioquia and Choco in north western Colombia.
