Peru Mining 2018 Pre-Release 2

May 22, 2018

When Martín Vizcarra succeeded PPK as Peru’s president, the mining sector not only welcomed the end of Kuczynski's political agony, but also the new president’s proactive approach towards mining development, following his successful work at Quellaveco when he was governor of Moquegua, between 2011 and 2014. While the political crisis unfolded, the mining industry continued its recovery path, with solid commodity prices helping companies across the board reduce their debts and move their feasibility-stage projects towards a construction decision. Indeed, afer three consecutive years of decline, total mining investment in Peru increased by 15.7% and reached US$4.92 billion in 2017. For 2018, the government expects an additional 20% growth.
