Nino Coppero, a 2011 LLM Graduate from the Denver Law Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Graduate Program, was in Denver last week in his role as attorney for a new copper mine being planned for southern Peru.
The new mine, Constancia, is located near Cuzco. It is owned by HudBay Minerals of Toronto.
While in Denver he met with a local engineering firm that is working on the processing plant permit.
Before joining HudBay Minerals, Mr. Coppero worked with the firm of Rodrigo, Elias & Medrano Abogados in Lima. At the firm he worked for Luis Carlos Rodrigo, a well known mining lawyer, who has also taught at Denver Law.
Mr. Coppero is a Fellow for the Sustainable Development Strategies Group and has taught mining and oil and gas law at the Peruvian University of Applied Sciences College of Law.
