Mining.com has published an article about mining risks in Latin America, with fresh data from our most recent report “The 2022 Latin America Mining Risk Index.” The article focused on the mining political risk, in countries such as Chile, Brazil, Peru and Argentina.

Here is a brief excerpt:

A rising demand to participate in the revenues from natural resources, tougher environmental protection rules and changes to laws are increasing risks for mining and energy companies across Latin America, even in countries once considered safe investment destinations, a new study shows.

According to the 2022 Latin America Mining Risk Index, published by consultancy Americas Market Intelligence (AMI), once investors’ darling – Chile – now presents more risks, but it remains the most welcoming jurisdiction for miners in the region.

The higher the overall score, the better a jurisdiction is for mining investment because the risks are not as acute, the authors explain.
