What's at stake in Chile's constitutional overhaul? (Part 1)

Report summary

Chile’s constitutional convention will put forward a proposed text in July. Reports suggest the proposal will include many articles which would cause profound change to the stakeholder/regulatory landscape. The mining industry is the implicit target of many of the slated environmental policies, with huge consequences for the viability of existing operations. Broadening nationalisation of mining assets, potentially via expropriation, could result from the most radical of proposals under consideration. The result of September’s referendum on the new constitution looks increasingly important for the mining industry. Verisk Maplecroft and Wood Mackenzie will collaborate on a series of insights assessing what Chile’s reform agenda means for the M&M sector. In this insight, we focus on the constitutional process underway and what it means for companies and commodities.

  • A disorderly process has spurred rejectionism
