Americas Market Intelligence (AMI) has organized weekly “Coffee Chats” about the Latin American mining sector that take place on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. via the Zoom platform.
In this June 16, 2020 Coffee Chat, Dr. Remi Piet — director of the Natural Resources practice for AMI — featured two guests from Lucky Minerals: Adrian Rothwell (President & CEO, Lucky Minerals) and Santiago Yepez (Country Manager, Ecuador). Lucky Minerals, historically present in North America, now focuses on the development of the Fortuna project in the Provinces of Azuay and Zamora Chinchipe (Ecuador).
The Chat focused on issues facing junior minors in light of the COVID-19 crisis, including exploration potential, investment returns and standards and engagement with communities now that the mining industry is re-emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the panelists exchanged perspectives on commodity prices and which junior mining companies are best equipped to meet the interests and standards of the investing community.
