Barrick's Zaldivar Chile copper mine closed due to rains-spokesman
March 27 (Reuters) - Barrick Gold Corp's Zaldivar copper mine in Chile is closed for "safety reasons" after heavy rains swept across the country's northern desert region this week, a spokesman said on Friday.
This was the first confirmation by Barrick that its operation was suspended, increasing to eight the number of copper miners, including the world's top producer Codelco , that have been affected by the bad weather. (Reporting by Josephine Mason in New York; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
