The purpose of this article is to provide specific understanding of stakeholders’ perceptions about the effects of mining industry in Chile, considering social, environmental and economic dimensions. This article uses a multistakeholder approach to analyse 55 semi-structured interviews using content analysis to present findings and the discussion in relation to stakeholder’s perceptions. Findings show a positive perspective across stakeholders groups about the mining impact in the economic domain. However, there is an adverse perception in the environmental dimension amongst stakeholders except for managers who state an ambiguous, but not negative, view in this regard. Similarly, in a social domain, perceptions are negative across issues except by the recognition to the mining contribution to educational matters.
