SANTIAGO, Aug 25 (Reuters) - Mining investment in Chile is seen at around $105 billion from this year through to 2023, the state copper commission Cochilco said on Monday.
Cochilco said investment likely to be completed over the next five-year period to 2018 amounted to around $30 billion, equivalent to that of the former five-year 2009-2013 period.
