The Center for Copper and Mining Studies, CESCO, is an independent, non-profit organization created in Santiago in  1984. The members of CESCO work as executives or consultant for national and foreign mining companies, others as professors in local or foreign universities. Throughout its history, CESCO has positioned itself as a meeting place for diverse sectors interested  in mining --business, academia, policymakers and professionals-- to promote ideas and discuss criteria about public policies related to economic and mining activities.
CESCO has organized its Annual Latin-American Mining Dinner within this framework since 1997. This event brings together the main players of the mining sector from around the world, with special emphasis on Latin America: mining companies, metal processing  companies, investment banks, traders, engineering and shipping companies, among others.
