Social Licenses For Mining Projects In Latin America

In this Mining Coffee Chat discussion organized by Americas Market Intelligence (AMI), Dr. Rémi Piet — director of the Natural Resources and Infrastructure practice at AMI — and John Price — AMI Managing Director — discuss the May 7 webinar AMI organized for mining professionals, which focuses on the social license for mining in LatAm jurisdictions.

As part of the discussion, Piet and Price focus on the best practices for managing the different risks that can affect a license to operate. These risks include political interference, regulatory, reputational risk, safety/security risks, infrastructure/labor risks, local community opposition and economic pressure.
