Pam & Louis' Empty Nest Chile Adventure travel blog

Louis in front of Xstrata Copper's Lomas Boyas mine

Heavy equipment at the mine site

View of the desert on the way to the mine. Nothing, nothing...


Visit to Xstrata Copper's Lomas Bayas mine located to the east of the city of Antofagasta. The mine is big to Canadian standards. Got to see a blast.

Drive to the mine brought us over the coastal range and through the central plateau. Very sunny and dry, very much a desert atmosphere. Nothing grows here. Not even a cactus.
