EGM Americas Darrell White reflects on Thiess’ recent successes in Chile and our future across the Americas.
In its Chile Mining Report 2022, international publication, Global Business Reports (GBR), recently featured Darrell’s insights into the Chilean mining jurisdiction and how Thiess plans to grow throughout the region.
Darrell has led our Americas business as EGM since 2020 and was selected to join a group of more than 100 leaders from major global producers, government agencies, industry associations, juniors, investors and service providers for the report.
In the indepth interview, Darrell touched on Thiess’ vision to be at the forefront of sustainable mining sharing updates on the recent deployment of electric-wheel-drive trucks from Liebherr and our participation in the Hydra Consortium.
The publication was recently circulated at several major industry conferences throughout the Americas, including Exponor in Chile and PDAC in Canada, to an audience comprised of local and international investors and stakeholders, governments, investment funds, and producers in Chile, such as BHP, Codelco, Antofagasta Minerals, Teck Resources and Freeport McMoRan, among others.

Pioneering sustainable resources solutions
Darrell was also recently featured in LatAM Investor’s most recent edition, Mineral Riches: The World Needs Latin America’s Metals, a special report on mining in Latin America. In the interview, Darrell spoke about our strategic positioning within Chile, the importance of our skilled workforce in the country and the initiatives we are involved in to push to the forefront of sustainable mining.
“Sustainability can be defined in many different ways,” said Darrell. “Yes, we work with finite resources, but the world needs mining to achieve the economic and social transformation it desires. But the world also needs mining to change, and our communities and people demand this.”
“Overall, Chile’s most important competitive advantage is geological,” said Darrell. “The country is mineral-rich with opportunities in gold and copper. Another advantage is that Chile is a mining country, home to highly skilled mining professionals. The availability of a skilled workforce is important as a generational change is happening in mining. New talent and continually advancing technology are needed to make projects successful.”
