Milton Fernando Montoya, attorney, and research director of our House of Studies Mining-Energy Law Department, was unanimously elected to be the Network’s first president.

The Externadista has a post-doctorate from the University of Dundee, UK. He holds a Law PhD from the Complutense University of Madrid and a Master’s in Energy Law from the Instituto Superior de la Energía (ISE), Spain. He is a founding partner of the firm Estudio Jurídico Montoya y Asociados.

The Latin American Mining Law Network, officially introduced on February 8, 2021, aims to promote a comparative analysis of mining regulation in the region. The Board of Directors comprises prominent academics and professionals from countries such as Chile, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Colombia.

“REDMIN, a unique synergy initiative, the only one of its kind in Latin America, was born from the collective efforts by attorneys and academics dedicated to the exercise of their profession in the mining sector, be it industry, authority agencies, or universities. Likewise, it arises from the intent of having an organized, professional community that can exchange views on the mining sector in their respective countries and discuss the main problems and challenges facing the mining sector at regional and local levels, “stated Montoya.
