This new proceedings volume highlights these success stories. It contains the proceedings of the first Latin American Mining Perspectives Symposium, a symposium organized by SME. The volume contains 37 papers contributed by authors working in and influencing Latin America’s mining and metallurgy.

The papers which are clearly presented, well illustrated, and well referenced will be a most useful guide to all those interested in the developments in the Latin American mining industry, particularly over the past decade. — Australian Mineral Foundation, AMF Reviews: Vol. 26(4), April 1998
