JUEVES MINERO IS HELD IN QUECHUA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN IIMP’S HISTORY

On September 16, in what was an unprecedented Jueves Minero (Mining Thursday) in the history of the Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers (IIMP), a conference called “Simbiosis and a case of community development with mining support” was given by the president of Simbiosis, César Huamán, the first one entirely in Quechua language.  

In the presentation, he said that this work allows to maintain a joint and concerted effort, which makes it possible to protect the environment and look for the well-being of everyone equally.

“Based on the work system with mutual help of our ancestors, we started the production and commercialization of the edible mushroom Boletus luteus, with the participation of women. From 2010 to the present, my community have more than two thousand hectares of pine cultivation,” he explained.

He also said that these mushrooms are exported to European markets, because they are food products with incomparable nutritional values and can be used in a variety of dishes, stews and ceviches, among others, to the extent that they replace meat.

“In all the Simbiosis mushroom production projects in the regions of Lambayeque, Amazonas, La Libertad, Cusco, Ancash, Piura and Huancavelica, women represent 95 percent of workers,” he explained.

In this context, he said that Compañía Minera Poderosa, Asociación Pataz and Chugay, contributed to start this work in the mountains of La Libertad, because the cultivation of pine contributes to the conservation of the environment and mushrooms for the economy of the members and workers of the project.

“This model should be replicated in the 24 regions of Peru, in order to improve the income of the people involved and achieve a better quality of life in the most remote areas of urban centers,” he remarked.

With this work of mutual support, Simbiosis won the first edition of PERUMIN Inspira, which was held within the framework of PERUMIN 34th Mining Convention in 2019.

 Panelists at this conference included: engineer Rayda Prado; anthropologist Apu Mendoza, member of Academia Mayor de la Lengua Quechua, Lucanas Branch (Ayacucho); Professor José Poma, from Universidad para el Desarrollo Andino; and engineer Huilde Meza.
