LIMA April 8 (Reuters) - Peru's government said on Friday an environmental impact study presented for Southern Copper's (SCCO.N) $1 billion Tia Maria project was "inadmissible."

A spokesman from the Energy and Mining Ministry said Southern Copper, a unit of Grupo Mexico (GMEXICOB.MX), will have to present a new study if it wants to advance the project, which has been the focus of violent protests by farmers. (Reporting by Patricia Velez)
