Forbes.com Peru's president opens Antamina mine: "Antamina could one day become one of the biggest mines of its kind in the world, expected to produce an annual average of 675 million pounds of copper and 625 million pounds of zinc during the first 10 years of its life, making it the world's No. 7 copper producer and No. 3 zinc operation."
