SANTIAGO, April 8 (Reuters) - Chilean copper miner Collahuasi said on Tuesday that the impact from last week's massive 8.2 magnitude earthquake in the country's north is "minor".

The mine, which is perched high in the Andean mountains, is expected to receive authorization Tuesday or Wednesday to reactivate its Patache port, from where it exports copper concentrate, Chief Executive Officer Jorge Gomez told Reuters.
