For its part, the First Category Tax during 2021 rose 125.5% in terms of the taxation of 10 large mining companies, translating into 3,321 million dollars, which required 29.1% of that tax.
For the executive president of the Mining Council, Joaquín Villarino, said on Radio Cooperativa, “this significant increase in tax collection from mining confirms that the current tax scheme – and in particular the mining royalty – enjoys a structure that, in addition to encouraging investments, obtains good results in the payment of taxes that translate into a sustainable collection over time.”
Meanwhile, the academic of the Department of Mining Engineering of the Catholic University, Gustavo Lagos, said that “there is room to increase the royalty, in this they all agree, but the problem is to see the space that there is, that is the discussion.”
