The Future of Latin American Mining

  • Online
  • 16:00-17:30

Canning House and LatAm INVESTOR present a high-level discussion on the post-Covid-19 future of the mining sector in Latin America, following the launch of LatAm INVESTOR's Latin American Mining report.

The Future of Latin American Mining

in partnership with LatAm INVESTOR

Coronavirus is reshaping mining in Latin America. The region has always been rich in metals but the industry has often struggled to win the support of local communities and stakeholders. The pandemic’s economic impact mean Latin America’s hard-hit economies need mining more than ever, yet it also increases the threat of populism.

Following LatAm INVESTOR’s recent Latin American Mining Report, join us for a high-level discussion of the future of mining in the region. A panel including HE Jaime Marchán, Ambassador of Ecuador to the United Kingdom; Roberto Maldonado, Vice President of Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers; Jose Montoya, VP Latin America, Appian Capital and Ramiro Blazquez, Head of Research, BancTrust & Co. will analyse the opportunities and threats to the industry in Latin America.

Read the full Latin American Mining Report in the latest issue of the LatAm INVESTOR magazine, available for free on their website.

This is optional and only those who opt in during the registration process will be visible to other attendees. Please note that introductions will only be made if both parties have given their consent during registration.
