Peru suspends permit for Southern Copper's $1.4 bln Tia Maria project

LIMA, Aug 9 (Reuters) - Peru has suspended a construction permit it recently gave to Southern Copper Corp for its $1.4 billion Tia Maria copper project while officials can re-evaluate its legality, authorities announced late on Friday.

In an interview with local broadcaster RPP, Energy and Mines Minister Francisco Ismodes said all five members of a government commission had voted to suspend the license during a review that is under way. (Reporting by Maria Cervantes, Writing by Mitra Taj, editing by G Crosse)
