CERRO MATOSO LITIGATION UPDATE

 

South32 Limited (ASX, LSE, JSE: S32; ADR: SOUHY) (South32) advises that on 9 April 2018 our Cerro Matoso operation accepted notification of the decision handed down by the Constitutional Court of Colombia in relation to alleged health and environmental impacts on the community surrounding our Cerro Matoso operation. We are in the process of appealing the decision.

At this stage it is not possible to fully assess any potential financial or operational impacts, as the decision orders various compensatory and remedial activities which are not yet quantifiable.  Our work is continuing to understand the impact of the decision and we will advise of any material developments.

South32 is committed to contributing positively to the communities where we operate and is proud of the work we do to support social and economic growth within the local community surrounding Cerro Matoso.
