Tis rigor and not law

The Fraser Institute Mining Survey, 2011/2012

It’s just out and you can get your copy of the 131 page wodge of mining fun by clicking this link right here. For your interest, this is what it says about Latin America in the executive summary:

Latin America’s average score continues to decrease, this year dropping from 34.3 to 29.6. This is a far cry from the 2005/06 survey, where the average score for that continent was 51.2. Venezuela, Guatemala, Honduras, and Bolivia pull the average down. There were also disappointments in Latin America for its top scorer, Chile, now at 18th, down from 8th last year, and its most improved jurisdiction, Colombia. In 2006/2007, Colombia scored 24.6 but climbed to 51.2 in last year’s survey. This year it scored 38.0, suggesting continued uncertainty in the mining community about policy and policy stability in Colombia.

Anyway, you should read the whole thing. Thanks given to reader MM for the headsup
