Abstract: The rescue of nine Peruvian miners who were trapped underground for seven days in a horizontal shaft at La Cortada copper mine in the Cabeza de Negro area of the coastal department of Ica, 300 km south of Lima, shone the spotlight once again on informal and illegal mining, undertaken without security measures and outside the law. President Ollanta Humala has decided to stop such activities.
