The Latin American zinc association (Latiza)

I didn't even realize this organization existed until I stumbled upon a interesting "in depth" piece that BNAmerica's did on it.

The Latin American Zinc Association (Latiza) is a regional branch of the International Zinc Association, which comprises both zinc producers, miners and refiners. Latin America, if you did not know produces roughly 23% of the global output of zinc, a very commonly used base metal.

If you're interested in learning more about Latiza and can read Spanish you should definitely check out their home page at:
