Geology Short Course

This course is intended as an introduction to Colombia’s main gold and copper geological terranes aimed at geologists, country managers and CEO’s of exploration and mining companies.


The event – which has a national and international audience – seeks to re-establish Colombia as a target market for international mining investment, and is an opportunity to get up to date on all the exploration and development of gold & copper projects in Colombia and to obtain practical information on issues such as applying for exploration concessions, prior consultation, permitting and environmental licenses, and dealing with important issues such as relations with involved communities, the environment and the Post-conflict. Furthermore, it will be a forum to discuss the most pressing issues that are affecting mining activity in Colombia and to propose and discuss effective solutions to be developed with the governmental agencies involved.
