Panama’s new mining code to allow participation of up to 35 percent in foreign governments’ share of projects
Foreign governments will be allowed to have up to a 35 percent share in mining concessions, under a new law that aims to replace provisions in the Mining Code that were overturned last March.
The percentage would apply to participation of foreign governments that could have a stake in private or public-sector joint ventures.
Under the clauses of the Mining Code that were overturned, foreign governments were not allowed to own, or participate in, mining ventures in Panama.
