Latin America is clearly recovering from the drop in mineral prices that occurred years ago, but it still doesn’t have an abundance of scalable mining projects. As a result, investors need to fund more projects that are in their early stages … and these will take longer to produce ROI.
This means higher levels of risk. Up to now, miners and investors have not had many independent resources to help guide them with the specific risks that can present themselves in LatAm mining jurisdictions.
Americas Market Intelligence (AMI) has therefore stepped up to offer one: a free whitepaper entitled Managing Mining Risk in Latin America.
Based on AMI’s experience in this LatAm mining — which stretches back more than 10 years and over the course of 200+ projects working with miners and investors — this whitepaper highlights 7 key risks and offers real-world, practical guidance to mitigate, manage or avoid risk.
