Peru: change in monthly metal mine production 2020, by type

In April and May 2020, a decrease in mine production in Peru was reported for every main metal produced in the country. Iron production was reduced to zero, while zinc, lead, and silver production dropped by around 70 percent, when compared to the same month of 2019. In contrast, in the first two months of 2020, metal mine production had increased for the majority of metals, when compared to the previous year. Since June, metal mine production in the Andean country has started to recover, and by August, iron, zinc, tin, and molybdenum production were above their respective 2019 levels. Meanwhile, production of precious metals in Peru still struggles, with production still more than 20 percent lower than reported a year earlier.
Quarantine measures against the spread of COVID-19 in Peru were put in place in mid-March, leading the majority of mining companies to suspend operations, maintaining only critical activities.
