Incentive for the Development of the Medium Mining Industry

Bnamericas Published: Thursday, August 15, 1996
Walter Riesco, president of Sonami, pointed out that the aim of the technical collaboration agreement signed between the Chilean national mining society and Intec, is to propose actions that will show that the small mining industries have a valid position in the national economy.

Riesco affirmed that this was the very reason which had prompted Sonami to sign with a company like Intec, with years of experience in the mining sector and with such celebrated clients as Cia. Minera Candelaria, Cia. Minera Dona Ines de Collahuasi, Cia. Minera Dayton Chile, Cia. Minera El Indio, Cia. Minera Mantos Blancos and Cia. Minera Escondida, amongst others.

Sally Bendersky, director of Intec Chile, indicated that, in conjunction with Sonami, there is already a mining development project underway in Region III. Ms. Bendersky pointed out that the areas of activity include assessment, training and development of infrastructure related to small and medium mining companies.
