GOLD ABUNDANCE

Geologically part of the South American Cordillera, one of the great gold-provinces of the world.

Rich natural resources with the best endowed country in the Cordillera on gold per unit area basis.

Less than 5% of the country explored.*

Strong history of mining dating back to pre-Incas era.

The following slides are from a presentation by the Minister of Mines at the IMARC conference in 2016.

These demonstrate clearly the opening up of Ecuador particularly for mining and exploration companies.
