Companies pursuing investments in exploration and mining in foreign jurisdictions face the daunting front-end task of evaluating advisability and feasibility, often within the context of unfamiliar political, economic, and social regimes. In-house and outside counsel often assume the substantive burden of advising company management on issues such as fiscal and foreign investment laws, anti-corruption legislation, the equator principles, the existence and provisions of bilateral investment treaties, tax and tax stabilization issues, political and expropriation risks, and other considerations. This presentation will capture and summarize the major investment factor-driven due diligence requirements for pursuing projects in foreign jurisdictions and offer practical insights on the means of obtaining such international due diligence information. This panel of experienced practitioners will give their perspectives on these various requirements.
