Mexico Mining Forum was the event of the week as industry leaders gathered to discuss CSR, Safety, politics and the future of mining under the AMLO administration. Our event hosted over 250 mining key decision makers, including the Undersecretary of Mining Francisco Quiroga, the CEO of Fresnillo Octavio Alvídrez and Senator Napoleon Gómez. But the financial news is not so good for many mining companies, as mining shares continue to struggle on the BMV. Internationally, Chile makes a historic investment to support the industry, while the collapse of a dam in a Vale mine in Brazil exposes the same danger all across the world.
