Scientific at Exponor 2017 Chile

Wednesday, 7th June 2017

The Region of Antofagasta, home to Exponor 2017, is the capital of Chile's mining industry, accounting for 54% of copper production in Chile and 16% of world production. These figures position Chile as the world's largest producer of copper. Mining is a cyclical activity that keeps pace with international economic indicators, as mineral prices rise and fall. Chile's exports have maintained a steady, linear trend in spite of fluctuations in the price of copper, pointing to a model of exploration and exploitation with the capacity to remain sustainable for years to come.
