Colombia has recently seen exponential growth in its mining industry — and the promise continues. Although Colombia has a long tradition of mining dating back to pre-Hispanic times, that potential went largely untapped in modern times due to socio-political unrest. Though Colombia is the fifth largest exporter of coal in the world, much of its territory and potential for mining gold, emeralds, silver, nickel and platinum remains unexplored.

However, improved security conditions have increased investor confidence, creating a business-friendly environment and a resurgence of Colombia's mining industry. 

This video publication, "Colombian mining matters" examines Colombia's mining industry in-depth, offering investors insights into many pressing questions:

  • How mining friendly is Colombia?
