Colombia is the most gold-rich nation in South America, but it is also the most under explored and under developed. There are proven multimillion-ounce deposits of rich gold under Colombian soil, but because there has been minimal investment in the gold mining industry over the past 30 years, the country remains largely unexplored with vast resources relatively untapped. In 2009 Colombia produced close to two million ounces of gold with the majority of mines operated as a craft or artisan industry. A dramatic increase in Colombia gold production is possible through the use of modern mining techniques and equipment.
In addition to rich mineral deposits Colombia offers a favorable investment climate with legal and financial incentives for mining companies, protection for foreign investment and continued macroeconomic stability. Colombia is fast becoming the most attractive location in Latin America for a variety of industries, with rapidly increasing foreign business investment as testimony to this point. The mining industry has led this charge, and that trend is expected to continue and amplify over the coming decade.
Investment Group Colombia (IGC) and our partners have years of experience in the Colombian gold mining industry. We can offer a variety of related investment opportunities, from partnerships in existing hard-rock mining operations, to fresh mining properties ready for exploration, to alluvial exploration and production on or near Colombia’s rivers.
Based on our experience in the gold mining industry in Colombia, we can also recommend a variety of industry professionals. These include geologists and geophysics experts, drill testing firms, industry and government representatives, and security firms.
The gold mining opportunity in Colombia is all the more exciting when you discover that, as of now, less than 8% of the country has been explored. Considering some of the world’s most significant gold deposits have been found in that small explored area, it is reasonable to expect further exploration leading to additional world class discoveries.
Investment Group Colombia and our partners are happy to discuss our current activities and the opportunities available with gold in Colombia.
