LIMA Feb 14 The new chief executive of Peru's
biggest precious metals miner, Buenaventura ,
said on Tuesday that he does not think the price of gold will
trigger the mining industry to initiate new mining projects
until it reaches at least $1,350 per ounce.
Victor Gobitz told Reuters that gold's recent rally combined
with the company's rising production has bolstered
Buenaventura's finances, which he described as "good" and on
track to improve in 2017 after an investment spurt last year.
