Mining is booming in Mexico.
Mining and oil and gas companies have become major employers and industries in the country, but in some areas the industry has become controversial.
The government is looking to expand the mining sector by allowing mining companies to create their own mining districts, or mining cooperatives.
The co-op idea has gained support in recent years from a growing number of people who want to diversify their income and have a say in what happens in their local communities.
The co-ops are not legally recognized by the Mexican government, but they are being proposed by mining and energy companies in the western region of Guerrero, according to Agencia de la Solidación.
The government is also seeking to allow the creation of cooperative mining companies in parts of Michoacan, where mining has been declining.
Co-ops have been proposed in Guerrero for a number of years, and in 2016 the state’s mining authorities proposed the creation in the state of a co-operative mining cooperative called Zapotecas Minees.
This proposed cooperative was created in partnership with the Ministry of Mines and Minerals, but no official proposals were made to the Mexican president.
The Mexican mining cooperatively is in the process of developing a coop in Jalisco, the state where Guerrero is located, but Zapoteca Minees is the only one in Mexico with a formal structure.
The Co-op Act allows the creation and governance of cooperative entities, which is in line with the national government’s goals of diversifying the economy.
The bill would allow mining cooperations to establish their own development projects, to own their own properties, and to establish a share in mining companies’ profits, according a document that the government presented to the government in March.
Mining co-operatives would also have to be approved by the government, which would allow them to operate in the areas where mining is still legal.
But some critics of the proposed legislation have criticized the co-opers as an attempt to undermine the independence of the cooperative mining industry.
The proposed legislation could have a negative impact on the Co-operative Mining Associations and the mining industry, according the Coop Federation of Mexico, which represents co-operated mines and mines owned by mining cooperats.
The federation argues that the coop concept could have unintended consequences.
Cooperatives, they say, are not allowed to compete with each other and instead, their sole purpose is to protect their interests and the community.
Cooperative co-operation is not an economic model for the Mexican mining industry or for the economy in general, they argue.
The Co-Op Act is a very important step toward establishing cooperative mining co-ordination and mining coexistence in Mexico, they maintain.
Mining cooperatives are still relatively small in Mexico’s vast territory of 11 million square kilometers (5.5 million square miles).
The country has the largest number of cooperatives in the world, according its website.
The United States has around 5,000 co-OPS.
The country has also struggled with mining regulations in recent decades, as mining companies have been required to provide adequate protection to communities that have been affected by mining activity, as well as for mining companies that mine on public lands.
In addition, the government has not always been clear on how it views mining coops, with the CoCoAJ, an advocacy group for co-owned mines, arguing that the law would allow mines to set their own rules.
Coop groups also have criticized how the government is handling the CoPe, or co-managed mining operations, in Mexico City.
The state of Puebla, in northern Mexico, was the site of a massive environmental disaster in 2010 that killed at least 13 people and destroyed much of the region’s environment.
CoCoAj also said the bill could lead to the loss of investment, job creation and economic growth in the mining economy.
In a recent opinion piece published in the official state-run newspaper, the National Reforma, CoCoJ wrote that the bill is a bad example of what should be done to ensure the viability of mining cooperatives in Mexico: “If it passes, it could lead the state to be completely dependent on mining companies for economic development, while the coops would be completely powerless.”
CoCoJ’s opinion piece, which was published on May 3, comes in the midst of a nationwide debate about the proposed Mining CoCoAm, or Miner CoCoam, legislation, which has been introduced in Congress.
The bill, which the Senate is expected to vote on this week, would expand the powers of co-ed companies in mining by allowing them to form a cooperative.
The legislation has gained momentum since the CoMeC, a coed-owned mining cooperative in the northwestern state of Guerrero.
In 2016, the covens established a mining cooperative, which eventually merged with another co- operated mining cooperative.
The first co- cooperative in Mexico was established in Guerrero in the early 2000s, but the cooperates were not recognized as independent entities
