MINPER - PERUMIN Official Investment Guide 2015

September 22, 2015

With some degree of uncertainty about the future evolution of commodity prices and the presidential elections in Peru next year, delegates are gathering in Arequipa for the 32nd edition of PERUMIN Mining Convention, one of the key mining shows worldwide.

While community issues around the Tía María copper project are also worrying investors, the truth is that Peru has seen a good number of projects advancing and even nearing completion during 2015, including Hudbay Minerals’ Constancia, MMG’s Las Bambas, Freeport McMoRan’s Cerro Verde expansion, and Hochschild Mining’s Inmaculada.

Adapting to the current environment of low metals prices will be key for operators and providers alike, but considering the diversity of mines and projects that Peru offers, the country’s mining industry will continue to be a key generator of investment, employment, and development.

MINPER 2015 analyzes all these challenges through the voice of the relevant industry leaders, and is being distributed to over 7,500 delegates at PERUMIN.

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.



"We plan to double our copper production by the end of the decade. There remains significant upside potential in the gold industry, and the copper operations are strategic and additive to that."
