OUR ORIGIN

INTRODUCTION

The gold production in Colombia dates back from pre-colonial times, when It became the target of Spanish conquerors in the sixteenth century. Colombia has the longest history on production and exploitation of gold in South America. Until the 20th century, 30% of the gold world wide came from Colombia.

Colombia has a great potential in mining. While doing a government study in order to stablish the strategic mining areas, 93 subareas were identified as relevant. This areas are covering a surface of 10,522,866 hectares which belongs to the 9.22% of the national territory. In fact, based on the valuation data of reserves reported to de General Comptroller of the Republic of Colombia, on which the new metalliferous metals projects were added it, such as La Colosa, Buritica, Sotonorte, Gramalote and Gigante, among others, it is estimated that Colombia has resources of about 146 million troy ounces (4,550 tonnes) of gold. In terms of gold production in Latin America, Colombia ranks fifth in annual production, with 54 tons per year, below Peru’s production with 140 tons annually. Countries like Mexico (The second largest producer in Latin America), Brazil and Argentina also have a higher annual production than Colombia. In total the production between all of the top five countries is nearly 265 tons per year.

The mining sector contributes significantly to the Colombian economy. First, in relation to gross domestic product (GDP), the mining sector accounts for an average contribution of 2.2% of Colombia’s GDP which generated $9.5 billion back in 2010. This amount increased to $10.6 billion in 2015. On that same period, coal’s share in GDP mining was approximately 65.9% while the metalliferous metals and non-metallic minerals participated with 18.9% of exports and 16% of foreign direct investment in the same period.
