Chile’s Antofagasta Eyeing Copper Opportunities Over the Andes

  • CEO Arriagada encouraged by Argentina’s transformation
  • Company interested in early-stage exploration projects

Antofagasta Plc, the copper miner owned by Chile’s wealthiest family, is taking a keen interest in Argentina’s efforts to lure back investors and open up its mining industry.

The Santiago-based company is interested in gaining a foothold in Argentina through exploration projects after President Mauricio Macri repealed currency controls and taxes and resolved a bond dispute to rejoin debt markets.
