This half-day course will feature a panel presentation focusing on some of the key areas of concern for the North American mining company professional or investor looking to enter into exploration or mining arrangements in Central or South America. The panel will discuss issues relating to the form of organization and critical deal elements that differ from the North American organizations, types and limitations of exploration and mining tenures, royalties, taxation (including cross border technical services issues and VAT taxation), selection of local counsel and role of the civil code lawyer, financing issues, project EPCM arrangements, political risk mitigation (including insurance and stability agreements), foreign corrupt practices issues, environmental and regulatory regimes, and other related topics of interest.

This course will be ideal for an exploration/mining company executive/investor considering entry, or to highlight problem solving in dealing with civil law issues.
