What is it?

Turning mineral resources into wealth is characterized as a difficult process, long and expensive, with high failure rates, which makes the activity essentially risky, and it is always necessary to balance the interests of the public entity, miners and affected communities.

In this regard, we have that the legal basis of mineral activity is supported by the Federal Constitution, the related legislation and the administrative rules that complement a basic normative structure, with emphasis on the recently amended Mining Code to better regulate the rules to enable the discovery of deposits and use of mines.

Substantiated in such variants, a permanent legal monitoring is necessary in order to reduce the uncertainties and to enable their development.

Jobim Advogados Associados has for many years advised and advised on mineral legislation for mineral exploration companies, from the stage of obtaining mineral exploration authorizations or mining concessions with the new National Agency for Mineral Research (ANPM) and the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) until the regular development of the mining activity.
