Is it possible to raise taxes on mining?

For Caretas, Enrique Chavez, executive of the SNMPE (Sociedad Nacional de Minería, Petróleo y Energía – National Society of Mining, Petroleum, and Energy), pointed out that formal mining companies currently pay 47% of their profits in taxes, royalties, and a total of eight tax items.
