New Mining Secretary, Luis Lucero, to Boost Argentina’s Underutilized Geological-Mining Potential

Luis Lucero appointed as the new Secretary of Mining by the Javier Milei Government

The Ministry of Economy of the Nation has announced the appointment of Luis Lucero as the new Secretary of Mining, according to a statement released by the government. Lucero is a lawyer specializing in the mining industry, natural resources law, and has extensive experience in project financing, corporate matters, and complex arbitrations and litigation. He will be taking over the position that Flavia Royón left in February after being fired by Milei following objections from deputies in Salta to points of the Omnibus Law.

Lucero 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 has also taken various specialization courses and seminars, including those related to government policy and corporate strategy in mining at the University of Dundee, negotiation at Harvard Law School, and foundations of organizational sciences at Columbia Business School and the University of Cambridge. Lucero holds a Master of Arts degree with honors from University College London (UCL).

The Mining Secretariat, headed by Luis Lucero, plays a crucial role in proposing, executing, and controlling the country’s mining policy. The Secretariat also works on interacting with provinces, municipalities, investors, and companies, as well as coordinating international cooperation efforts. Argentina has vast geological-mining potential which is currently underutilized. Last year, Argentina exported $4 billion in mining products
