Of interest to readers of the PSG Newsletter will be a recently published book on La Granja, the mine developed (but now abandoned) by Rio Tinto Zinc (RTZ). The book is published by Routledge and authored by Gerardo Castillo Guzmán. We have not read the book, but it comes with good recommendations.

La Granja, in Cajamarca, was one of the four mining projects we surveyed last year as part of a project directed by Rosemary Thorp with fieldwork by Maritza Paredes from the Catholic University in Lima. It is regarded as one which maintained relatively good relations with neighbouring communities.
