Javier Milei’s government has appointed Luis Lucero as the new Secretary of Mining, according to a statement from the Ministry of Economy. Lucero is a lawyer with expertise in the mining industry, natural resources law, project financing, corporate matters, and complex arbitrations and litigation. He will be taking over the position previously held by Flavia Royón, who was dismissed in February following objections from Salta deputies regarding the Omnibus Law.

Prior to his appointment, Lucero worked at various prominent legal firms in Argentina and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman in the United States. He is a graduate of the University of Buenos Aires with a Postgraduate Degree in Business Law from Universidad Argentina de la Empresa. Additionally, he has completed numerous specialization courses and seminars at prestigious institutions such as Harvard Law School, Columbia Business School, University of Cambridge, and University College London (UCL).

As the head of the Mining Secretariat under Javier Milei’s administration, Lucero will be responsible for proposing, executing and monitoring the country’s mining policy. The Secretariat works closely with provinces, municipalities, investors and companies to coordinate international cooperation and maximize Argentina’s geological-mining potential. Last year alone, Argentina exported $4 billion worth of minerals with projections reaching $20-25 billion by 2030 primarily driven by copper projects and its potential to become a major lithium producer.

Lucero’s appointment highlights Javier Milei’s focus on maximizing Argentina’s mining potential while promoting sustainable development within the sector.
