Union at Chile's Caserones copper mine extends mediation with company

Aug 13 (Reuters) - The main union at Chile’s Caserones copper mine said on Monday that both sides had agreed to extend government mediation of labor talks until Thursday.

The agreement means a strike approved by 98.5 percent of workers in a vote on Sunday will be postponed, said José Zambra, a spokesman for the union at Caserones. The mine is majority owned by Pan Pacific Copper Co Ltd, a partnership between JX Holding Inc and Mitsui Mining & Smelting Co Ltd, and Mitsui & Co Ltd.
