The Global Mining Guide is a helpful introduction to local mining laws and regulations across a number of key mining jurisdictions. Over the years Baker McKenzie's Global Mining Guide has provided a global perspective on the mining regulations of the world's major jurisdictions in this sector. Readers are provided with an overview of both the main mining regulations and how legal norms are today shaping future trends. It is clear that many of the issues of concern in today's mining industry will have a direct impact on the business of mining in the future, and as active industry participants we should always consider what we will leave behind as the heritage and teachings in an industry of this cyclical nature on which so many countries in the world still depend on today.

This guide seeks to deepen the understanding of the mining sector, how minerals are treated in different jurisdictions, how each country's legislation gradually seeks to achieve sustainable development and environmental protection in the face of imminent climate change, and what regulatory measures are in place to attract foreign investment, a significant driver for many of mining sector-dependent economies.
