Equipo Minero - Mining professionals trust Equipo Minero for Mining News

As a mining region, Latin America represents the largest destination for investment dollars. Whether it's Chilean copper, Mexican silver, Peruvian gold, or Brazilian iron ore, Equipo Minero (mining equipment) reaches the front line managers that speak Spanish. While there are several regional titles serving the market, only a few cover all of Latin American mining and only one has the expertise to deliver the technical content mine and plant managers expect.

A bi-monthly publication with a heavy digital presence, Equipo Minero combines boots on the ground reporting from Latin American mining operations with technical articles translated from Engineering & Mining Journal (E&MJ). The format is a neutral form of Spanish that pleases the entire audience. If your company is considering this market, Mining Media can assist with translations to promote goods and service throughout the region.

Latin America represents one of the most vital mining regions. The region from the Tex-Mex border to the tip of South America is rich in natural resources. Chile is the world's largest copper producer. More than half of the copper is produced by Codelco (Corporacion Nacional del Cobre), the stateowned mining company. Peru is the world's largest silver producer and the No. 10 gold producing country.

Equipo Minero reaches an extensive audience throughout Latin America, including mines and personnel that are in remote areas not reachable by regular mail. In addition to the BPA average qualified, audited print circulation of 6,020, Mining Media International has compiled a list of more than 18,100 email addresses of Latin American mine operators and service providers who are sent a digital copy of the magazine.

Although it's known primarily for agriculture, Argentina represents a new frontier for mining in South America. Several new large scale Argentinean mines have opened in the last few years and many projects are on the books. Brazil is home to Vale, one of the world's largest mining companies. Domestically, Brazil leads the world in iron ore production. Both Colombia and Venezuela have coal, gem stones and precious metals. Several new mining operations have opened in Central America. Farther to the north, Mexico has a very healthy mining industry that includes gold, silver, iron ore, base metals and coal. Estimates indicate nearly 70% of the Latin American land mass remains unexplored.

Many mining professionals (engineers, geologists and metallurgists) were educated in mining schools where English was the primary language and they read E&MJ. For many mid-level managers who were trained at the mine sites throughout Latin America, however, Spanish is the primary language and Equipo Minero was created to reach them.

Equipo Minero is published six times per year. It carries organic reports on mining and mineral processing operations as well as technical articles from E&MJ translated into Spanish. The magazine also carries news on the mines as well as the equipment and services they use. Equipo Minero has won many admirers throughout the Latin American mining sector and has quickly become a trusted source for technical information.
