Mining Laws and Regulations 2023

Mining Laws and Regulations 2023

The ICLG – Mining Law 2023 guide covers common issues in mining laws and regulations – including the acquisition of rights, ownership requirements and restrictions, processing, transfer and encumbrance, environmental aspects, native title, and land rights – in 15 jurisdictions, featuring two expert analysis chapters.

Holland & Hart’s Energy, Environmental, and Natural Resources attorney Andrew Emrich served as the Mining Laws and Regulations 2023 contributing editor and is the contributing author of the expert analysis chapter, titled “The Winds of War: Trade and Regulatory Challenges Facing the Mining Industry.” In this chapter, Emrich covers sanctions and divestment of Russian energy and metals, regulatory developments over the past year, and a look ahead.

Holland & Hart’s Mining, Energy, Natural Resources, and American Indian Law attorney Karol Kahalley served as the contributing author for the “Mining Laws and Regulations USA 2023” jurisdictional chapter. In this chapter, Kahalley provides insight into common mining issues, including relevant authorities and legislation, recent political developments, foreign ownership and indigenous ownership requirements and restrictions, rights to use surface of land, and much more.

These chapters were originally published in the ICLG – Mining Law 2023 guide.
