GDS International Summits fourth NG Mining LA Summit on 12th to 14th November 2012 to discuss region’s most pressing issues in the industry today.
Latin America’s mineral-rich land has generated a significant amount of interest over recent years. With Brazil leading the way in terms of mineral production, this lucrative industry has fast become one of the region’s most important economic activities, leading to economic self-sufficiency in a lot of countries. This growth is, however, is not without its pitfalls. Intensive mining provoked by a voracious global appetite for minerals has both boosted the region’s GDP and made the finite nature of such reserves increasingly more apparent. Sustainable development and intelligent investment are subsequently proving key to long-term profitability. The Mining Summit will address sustainable development and other emerging issues present in the Latin American mining industry today.
Mathias Peña Grez, Summit Director for the event run by GDS International, believes that the fourth NG Mining LA Summit is poised to set the benchmark for future events in the industry. This year’s focus is on inviting key executives from some of the most relevant new projects happening in Latin America.
