Harvard University does mining in LatAm (and does it well)

A veritable feast of prose on mining in LatAm is served up in this quarter’s Harvard University magazine, ReVista, with links to all the articles off the main page here (and all available for free).
Subjects include China’s increasing mining presence in Peru (a particularly interesting note), a Mining Boom in LatAm general macro overview article, the mining boom in Colombia and a host of other industry-focussed notes. But also there are half a dozen articles on the other side of the story, that of country and community protests and resistance to the advance of mining projects in the area, including overview notes on indigenous pushback against mining and case studies from Guatemala and El Salvador, among others.
And more and more and more. I’ve spent the last hour reading through the contents and attest that it’s an excellent resource for anyone interested in Mining in Latin America, with much food for thought. Here’s the main page again with all the links, go use it.
