mineSouthAmerica: Focus on Peru - Oct 5, 2011

with Premier Sponsor Macleod Dixon LLP


seminar report

October 5th was timely for our second Focus on Peru seminar with Premier Sponsor Macleod Dixon LLP for two reasons:

1) It came seven days after the announcement of three new bills for mining royalties in Peru; and

2) It came one day after the announcement of Macleod Dixons's merger with Norton Rose OR LLP (formerly Ogilvy Renault) to form Norton Rose Canada.

Over the course of the afternoon a total of one hundred and ten participants heard project updates by Epic Mining, Strait Gold, Sunset Cove and Viper Gold as well as technical presentations on doing business in Peru's mining industry by Ernst & Young, Jennings Capital and Macleod Dixon.
