Latin America’s mineral wealth is undeniable, holding the world’s largest reserves of copper, lithium and silver. Peru, Mexico, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina alone were responsible for half the silver produced worldwide in 2018, and 9 out of the top 10 biggest copper producing mines of 2019 are located in the region. Peru is a top two copper producer and among the top 10 in gold, while large-scale gold mines continue to be discovered and activated in Ecuador. Colombia is the world leader in emerald production and holds the largest coal reserves in South America. However, despite the currently impressive production levels in the region, the real extent of its exploration potential is still widely believed to be largely unexploited.

To realize this potential and strengthen their countries’ mining project pipelines, Latin American governments are racing to implement creative incentives and bolster the ease of doing business to lure much-needed and capital-heavy investments to the continent. To discuss the competitiveness of their mining projects on offer, The Business Year is bringing together cabinet-level leaders in the public sector from across the region in a Digital Latin American Mining Summit. This special edition of our Digital Round Tables series will include individual presentations from policy-makers with a dedicated Q&A session, offering the audience the opportunity to interact directly with these authorities, as well as a group panel discussion.
