Argentina's Santa Cruz province slaps a 1% annual tax on mine resources, a move mining companies say they will challenge in court. While the percentage seems small, miners say it will cost them $100M in new taxes next year, as the tax amounts to ~8% of the total resources of a mine with a 15-year life. Among miners with operations in Santa Cruz: AU -3.5%, MUX -2.3%, GG -2.5%, PAAS -1.4%.
