Chile continues to be one of the large global destinations attracting investors for the development of mining problems, primarily copper, molybdenum, gold and silver. There are more than 50 initiatives that are expected to be materialized between 2015 and 2025 for over US$ 100 billion, which would increase copper production to more than 8 Mton by 2025, while the offer of gold, molybdenum and iron would duplicate during this period (*). This in addition to the significant operating expenses and costs of Large Chilean Mining Companies, of around US$26 billion per year (**), highlight important business opportunities on topics such as: • Energy and water supply (primarily desalinationplants) • Capital goods and inputs for concentration plants (as of 2025, 80% of copper production is expected to use this system) • Engineering services • Consulting on improving productivity • Community relations • Waste management and recovery of preciousmetals, etc. Since 1990, and throughout its thirteen previous versions, EXPOMIN has generated business of more than US$ 11 billion and received more than 600 thousand professional visitors, reaffirming its strategic value as a unique commercial platform for the exchange of knowledge at the regional and global level. * Source: Chilean Copper Commission, www.cochilco.cl ** Source: Mining Council Annual Report, 2013-2014, www.consejominero.cl (Note: excludes salaries)
