Mining Legislation

The Chamber of Mining of Ecuador was founded on March 19, 1979, with domicile in the city of Quito. It was established as a private law entity that seeks to encourage and promote the development of the country’s mining activity as an organized and priority industry, as well as any activity related to the exploration and exploitation of non-renewable natural resources and related and derived activities. It is also responsible for ensuring the effective validity of the rights of its members.
