SANTIAGO, Sept 3 (Reuters) - The redesign of the approximately $7.5 billion Andina mine in Chile will take around two years and involve a new procedure in the application for its environmental permit, Codelco told Reuters on Thursday.

State-run Codelco, the world's No.1 copper producer, said last week it was reworking its plan to expand its key Andina mine in the wake of a falling copper price and protests about the project's possible impact on the environment.
