"I've been in contact with both Lima and the project and am delighted that neither has been affected, and that all our people are safe. The Mina Justa project is located over 400 kilometres south of Lima and both the site and the nearby town of San Juan de Marcona are safe from the effects of the quake," said Mr. Rath.

"Naturally our thoughts and prayers are with families who have been impacted and Chariot will seek to contribute to the relief effort."
