In this sense, the State promotes the growth of mining and energy activities by promoting the prevention and mitigation of environmental and social impacts, in order to achieve the sustainable development of the country. A basic objective of the Mining Law is the investment in exploration and the development of projects in the areas granted. Thus, it discourages speculative tenure by introducing penalties for the effect of unproductive mining rights, which gives opportunity to new prospects.
