Mining in Ontario and Toronto's Global Reach 2023 - Digital Interactive

May 04, 2023

Ontario has long been a leading mining jurisdiction, but in recent years it has been surpassed by other jurisdictions offering more attractive incentives, faster permitting and less red tape. In defending against complacency, Ontario now has a dedicated mining ministry for the first time in decades that has set its sights on returning the province to the top of the league tables once again. It is more essential than ever to bring mines online in an efficient manner, because a precarious concoction of geopolitical tension and acute underinvestment in raw materials has exposed significant vulnerabilities in mineral-hungry supply chains. Fortunately, Ontario has all the necessary tools, including mineral endowment, and know-how, to reposition itself as a hub of mining activity that powers global economic development.

GBR’s annual Mining in Ontario and Toronto’s Global Reach 2023 report delves into the themes impacting the global mining sector, comprising analysis based on over 120 interviews with the leading executives from major producers, associations, juniors, consultants, investors and service providers, to provide an in-depth and holistic view of what is happening now, and more pertinently, what could be happening in the months and years ahead.

Chile Mining 2024 Pre-Release

The Chilean mining renaissance has begun. In 2024, the country is set to experience its first increase in copper production since 2018, driven by Codelco’s production surge and Teck Resources’ Quebrada Blanca II coming online. This year also saw the first major regulatory update since 1983 with amendments to Law No. 21,420, which modernized the mining framework. The government has shown strong support for the industry by committing to reduce permit processing times by a third and proposing 20 actionable measures to streamline processes. Additionally, Chile classified its 69 saline environments, leaving 31 open for private development and initiating a request for information process in April to rapidly advance these areas.
