Chile Mining 2023

August 18, 2023

The first half of 2023 was a transformative period for the Chilean mining industry. On May 10th, the Chilean legislature approved the new royalty bill, defining the latest state of taxation for the mining industry. Additionally, after years of delay, the government announced the new National Lithium Strategy, clarifying the structure of the future Chilean lithium industry and opening the country to develop new lithium projects. This sweeping regulatory and legislative reform has redefined the industry, providing the legal certainty Chile needed to take advantage of the growing demand for battery metals.
