Mining activity has been an engine of historical development for Chile and, therefore, the country's economic growth is highly dependent on the degree of efficiency in the use of resources associated with this sector. This book prepares an updated and detailed diagnosis of the evolution of mining productivity in Chile in the last 20 years and compares it with that of other mining countries such as Australia, Canada and Peru. Based on this analysis, different actors in the industry propose measures to promote the productivity of mining in Chile around twelve axes: environmental institutions, mining exploration, labor policies, relations between companies and suppliers, human resource management, security, mining asset management, operations management, technology innovation and adoption, infrastructure, small and medium mining, and alliances between public and private. Mining Productivity in Chile is, without a doubt, the book that updates the information needs required by this industry to remain competitive in this strategic Chilean productive sector and promote the country's sustainable development.
