The Anglo Chilean Society held their annual Mining Conference on October 20th. This year due to restrictions it was a virtual webinar. The Society was delighted that the Minister of Mining My Baldo Prokurica was present and gave his annual address.
The event was opened by the Society's chairman , Mr Alasdair Grant who thanked our generous sponsors: Antofagasta Holdings Plc. Anglo American Plc and The London Metal Exchange. This is one of the Society's most important events and as well as educating those in the UK about Chile it also raises funds for the Society's charitable obligations.
The Minister gave a 20 minute address which was simultaneously translated into English for those that required. Mr Prokurica outlined the plans of his Government from dealing with tailings, investment opportunities in Green Hydrogen and Lithium and copper mining. He also discussed the future constitutional referendum as well a the covid situation. The Society was delighted that Ms Andrea Hotter from the metal Bulletin joined us from New York to host a Q and A session.
The Society looks forward to hosting the Chilean Mining Community in person next year.
