In the Bible, Ophir is a land from which comes gold and other precious things. King Solomon's treasures came at least in part from Ophir. See 1 Kings 9:28 and 1 Kings 10:11.
The mining of precious metals has long been associated with Peru, as has the exploitation of the land and people by outside mining interests.
