Mining Weekly reported Bolivia has witnessed a spate of mining disputes, moves to nationalise and renationalise projects, and violence among protesting miners.
As quoted in the market news:
The first significant incident occurred on June 22, when Bolivia cancelled commodities trader Glencore’s operational rights to the Colquiri tin mine, the second-largest in the country. Unsurprisingly, the company opposed the decision. “[Glencore] reserves its rights to seek fair compensation pursuant to all available domestic and international remedies,” the company said.
