REFILE-Glencore hands back Prodeco's mining contracts to Colombia

(Adds media packaging code)

Feb 4 (Reuters) - Glencore said on Thursday that its Colombian unit will commence the process of handing its mining contracts back to the Republic of Colombia, after a review found that its two mines were uneconomic to recommence operations.

Glencore said Prodeco has re-commenced the voluntary redundancy programme and its mines will remain on care and maintenance until the formal process of relinquishing the contracts is completed. (Reporting by Shanima A in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
