Adjunct Professor and Argentine Mining Expert Florencia Heredia Writes About Mining Law for Latin Lawyer Magazine

Florencia Heredia, a partner at the Buenos Aries, Argentina, law firm HOLT Abogados, recently contributed an article to Latin Lawyer about mining in Argentina.

In "Mining 2011 - Argentina," Ms. Heredia provides an overview of the Argentine mining industry and describes the legal and regulatory framework there. She also discusses the investment regime applicable to foreign company involvement in mining projects.

The article explains the mining exploration and exploitation permit or concession regime as well as the licensing regime. In addition, she describes the collateral security arrangements permitted in Argentina.

Ms. Heredia is the Senior Vice-Chair of the International Bar Association's Mining Law Committee. She also has served as a Trustee of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation.

In the summer of 2009, Ms. Heredia teamed up with fellow mining law expert Luis Carlos Rodrigo, a partner in the firm of Rodrigo, Elias & Medrano Abogados in Lima, Peru, to teach a first of its kind course, "Comparative Latin American Mining Law" at Denver Law. The one-week intensive course generated high praise by students for its substantive content as well as the opportunity it provided them to learn from two of the most distinguished mining lawyers in the world. Plans are underway to have Ms. Heredia and Mr. Rodrigo return to Denver in 2012 to teach the course again.
