    Dr. Lonnie Thompson was the first "Western" (Northern?  Non-indigenous?) scientist to discover the South American glaciers and study them.  One of my class projects included making a map of the Cordillera Blanca glaciers.  I can think of at least two professors beyond Dr. Thompson who are currently studying the area.  Ohio State's Geology and Geography departments have very strong ties to the region and I haven't heard anyone mention this mining operation.  I'll ask around and see if anyone has heard anything about this.
