Peru Mining 2014

October 16, 2014

The Peruvian government has outlined an ambitious $60 billion portfolio of mining projects, and the country’s geological richness and business-friendly environment will help it deliver, but it remains to be seen if it can continue to attract investment in the down market. Investment in the country’s mining industry was a record-breaking $9.5 billion in 2013, but Peru will need more projects after 2016 to keep up the pace. Several proposed projects are uncertain at the moment. GBR’s Spanish-language report examines the state of the Peruvian mining industry and offer fresh insights into the government and mining industry’s strategies for the medium- and long-term.


Tembo Power is developing hydropower projects across Africa with a focus on DRC.
Chesser Resources is upbeat about its Diamba Sud gold resource in Eastern Senegal.
Robocon speaks with GBR about the outlook for its services in Peru.

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."
