Recently published research from Timetric, "Base Metals Mining in Bolivia to 2020", is now available at Fast Market Research
[ClickPress, Tue Jan 13 2015] The Bolivian base metals mining industry primarily consists of zinc and lead, with production of these two metals accounting for 3% and 2% of the global total. The mining industry has played an important role in the country's economic development, contributing 6% to its GDP as of October 2014, and secured FDI worth US$219 million in 2012. In 2013, Bolivia's zinc and lead production measured 395,100 and 78,800 tonnes respectively. The majority of the country's zinc originates from the San Cristobal province and the Potosi department, while much of its lead production originates from the Porco and Caballo Blanco Mines, also located in the Potosi department.
* In 2013, the country's zinc and lead ores and concentrates exports measured 740,000 tonnes and 145,700 tonnes respectively.
* The country's fiscal regime was somewhat confusing until the passing of a new Mining Law in May 2014, which replaced the Mining Code of 1997 (law No. 1777 of March 17, 1997). The new law restricts the country's cooperative miners (a group of individual miners) associating with both domestic and foreign private companies.
* As of June 2014, the World Bank Ease of Doing Business ranking for Bolivia was 157 out of 189 countries. According to the Corruption Perspective Index 2013, the country is ranked 106 among 177 country measured by the Transparency International.
* As of October 2014, the mining and quarrying sector had a share of approximately 6% of the Bolivian GDP. Earlier in 2012, the sector had a share of approximately 7% of Bolivian GDP as against a 9% share in 2011.
