Mining / Environment
BSBC’s partners have strong and extensive experience in advising Brazilian and foreign clients in projects involving the exploration of metalliferous minerals, with emphasis on aluminum, copper, tin, iron, manganese, niobium, nickel, gold, and platinum, as well as fertilizers and industrial minerals.
Our practice involves the performance of comprehensive legal due diligence related to the acquisition of mineral rights or mining projects at any stage (greenfield and brownfield), as well as advice to our clients in activities related to the development of mineral exploration programs, feasibility studies, implementation, operation, and expansion of mining projects, mine closure, and rehabilitation of degraded areas.
Our practice also includes participation in environmental licensing, in the implementation of logistics systems associated to the trinomial mine-railway-port, and in matters related to access to the surface land for the conduction of exploration and mining works.
As part of the legal advice related to the implementation and development of mining projects, we also act in the structuring of joint ventures and partnerships, in many cases side by side with international law firms from Common Law countries.
