Arizona & Nevada Mining 2023

February 02, 2023

Two great mining stories are currently unfolding in the southwestern US. GBR is delighted to present “Arizona and Nevada Mining 2023”, a special report covering the main mining trends and actors in the southwest. Arizona’s role as the leading copper producer in the US is further reinforced by energy transition goals and policies. Gold heavyweights in Nevada, meanwhile, surf on high commodity prices to strengthen their operations and invest in forward-looking technologies, while forward-looking companies look to extract lithium.

Regulars among the top 10 mining jurisdictions in Fraser Institute's Investment Attractiveness Index, Arizona, and Nevada ranked 5th and 3rd respectively in 2021. The mining industries in Arizona and Nevada are ready to play their part in tackling the challenge posed by climate change. Net-zero targets have been fixed, roadmaps towards sustainability drawn, and low-carbon technologies adopted. And to make mines more efficient, sustainable, and safe, miners can rely on a widespread network of service providers, consultants, and technology firms.

From on-the-ground research at mining sites to in-person meetings with key industry players, GBR’s research team conducted 120 interviews from the depths of the Grand Canyon to the shores of Lake Tahoe to draw a picture of these states’ resourceful mining industries. The following pages are the culmination of those meetings and provide exclusive executive insights and analysis of the key trends likely to shape the future of Nevada, Arizona, and the US.

Chile Mining 2024 Pre-Release

The Chilean mining renaissance has begun. In 2024, the country is set to experience its first increase in copper production since 2018, driven by Codelco’s production surge and Teck Resources’ Quebrada Blanca II coming online. This year also saw the first major regulatory update since 1983 with amendments to Law No. 21,420, which modernized the mining framework. The government has shown strong support for the industry by committing to reduce permit processing times by a third and proposing 20 actionable measures to streamline processes. Additionally, Chile classified its 69 saline environments, leaving 31 open for private development and initiating a request for information process in April to rapidly advance these areas.
