Shared infrastructure in the mining industry
Room C3.1, Convention Centre, Level 3


Mining Law Committee (Lead)
International Construction Projects Committee


The increase in capital expenditure and the growing difficulty in obtaining permits required to build the infrastructure required by mining projects has led many mining companies to associate, or agree on other contractual techniques, which allow them to share the use of existing infrastructure or jointly construct new infrastructure. This panel will discuss cases of shared infrastructure in different jurisdictions, the challenges and difficulties implied, and the contractual techniques that have been used for such implementations.
