Xstrata plc (“Xstrata”) has made a donation of US$500,000 to the Chilean Red Cross and given a further US$500,000 to support relief efforts being undertaken by an Antofagasta-based industry body. The donation has been made from Xstrata’s central Corporate Social Involvement funds.
In addition, Xstrata Copper is providing a range of in-kind support, including food parcels for impacted employees, supporting a rescue and reconstruction team and facilitating helicopters for the rescue effort. Xstrata Copper has matched funds raised by its employees in Chile and a total of US$65,000 has been donated to a national homeless organisation Un Techo Para.
Xstrata’s operations were not impacted by the earthquake and are running as normal.
Xstrata will continue to support relief and reconstruction efforts in Chile as the country recovers and rebuilds in the wake of the earthquake.
