In a major move, the Government of Javier Milei has appointed Luis Lucero as the new Secretary of Mining, it was announced by the Ministry of Economy of the Nation. The appointment was made after Flavia Royón left the position in February following objections from deputies in Salta to points of the Omnibus Law.

Lucero is a lawyer with extensive experience in mining industry, natural resources law and project financing, corporate matters and complex arbitrations and litigation. He graduated as a lawyer from the University of Buenos Aires and completed a Postgraduate Degree in Business Law from the Universidad Argentina de la Empresa. He also holds a Master of Arts degree with honors from University College London (UCL).

As Secretary of Mining, Lucero will be responsible for proposing, executing, and controlling the country’s mining policy. The Secretariat plays a crucial role in interacting with provinces, municipalities, investors, and companies as well as coordinating international cooperation efforts. With vast geological-mining potential currently underutilized in Argentina, this is an exciting opportunity for Lucero to make his mark on the industry.

Argentina has already exported $4 billion in mining products last year and it is projected that by 2030 this number could increase conservatively to $20 billion and possibly reach $25 billion with the development of copper projects. Additionally, Argentina has significant potential to become the third-largest lithium producer globally as energy sources with low greenhouse emissions become increasingly important.
