The Ministry of Economy granted 8,000ha in mining concessions in the state of Puebla for the extraction of mineral resources. According to data from the ministry, 17 concessions were granted for the exploration and exploitation of mining resources in the state. 

Experts consulted by El Economista say new mining concessions could increase, even though President Andrés Manuel López Obrador promised in August not to give more concessions. Grupo México announced, through its subsidiary Perforadora México, that the company wants to boost the development of geothermal power generation projects in the country. Also, Minera Mexico, another subsidiary of Grupo México, placed US$1 billion in bonds among more than 200 investors from the US and Europe.
