Just wait until the investment banks on Wall Street start reading the small print on the constitutional rewrite.

would you throw a few billion dollars at expanding a copper mine, when you might not even own it in a couple of years?

I am actually impressed no one in mining industry has put 2+2 together and sounded the alarm yet in the broader commidities markets. They will eventually.

Probably only get their information from something like BNAmericas or some other sunshiny source. You right they will eventually put 2+2 together, maybe on October the 26th? 🤔

Think about this. More than 1/5 of the world copper supply, and whole lot of other commodities, depend on a handful of lines in the current constitution. Lines that the far left has had in their cross-hairs for 50+ years.

Just the conversation about talking about messing with it, should be setting off a nuclear bomb in the copper market.

Add in weakening dollar, lots of stimulus money, suspended mining projects due to covid, increase demand for copper in renewable tech, a billion people with no electricity, etc.

The copper price should easily be above $4 a pound right now, or will be shortly.

today's press conference the minister of health admitted there was no plan for the election and they are going to have a meeting next week about it.

https://www.emol.com/noticias/Nacional/ ... vid19.html

90 days before?
Today a journo asked how they were going to deal with covid19 infected persons voting in the plebiscito. The minister did not have an answer, but confirmed that it is a constitutional right to vote. Still not seeing how they are going to solve that in about 60 days? If not, then what - Will somebody declare the plebiscito inconstitucional?

yea, the conditions are set by the SERVAL not the health service, and that was the debate going on in congress today was to give election service more powers to set the conditions for the election related to the pandemic.

on the brite side today, another puma in Barnecha. guess there is a healthy puma population around santiago. Think that is like number 10 since the pandemic.

I guess they can not figure out where all the toy poodles and joggers went to, and keep coming in to the city looking for them.

Yeah I'm not voting, Im still registered in Osorno, so really not interested in making the trip up there.
I imagine they will have to give everyone a pen to fill out the form, and they get to keep it , and just wipe the surfaces down and have plenty of alcohol gel, maybe gloves for those that want , I honestly dont see it being that big of an issue. They can open malls and public transport, I'm sure they can hold a referendum, just get the thing over and done with already.

Cant they just issue special voting papers (postal, or chileexpres or whatever, just zap them with UF or leave them in a bin for 24 hours before they are open) for those people in quarantine or whatever if they are sick. They do it in other countries for people that are not able to vote on election day, theres ways, there wont be that many people. I think they were secretly hoping it wouldn't go ahead and would prefer that I guess, that's why they are just ignoring practicalities and logistical questions.

Hi guys, I received a letter from Servel regarding voting the other day. I have permanent residence. I am not a Chilean citizen. Is it compulsory that foreigners with permanent residence vote?
