Description: Chile has an economy strongly based on the exploitation of its natural resources. Copper mining represents the main export monetary income, employing thousands of people all along the country. The Chilean Copper Corporation (CODELCO), El Salvador branch, has been the primary mining company, but it will be ending most of its activities by 2011 unless copper prices stay at their record levels. Besides the job consequences for the local population, there are some serious environmental issues that must be solved during the shut-down.

Keywords: hydrology, erosion, mining, Chanaral Bay, Chile, Chilean Copper Corporation (CODELCO)
