renowned speakers

More than 20 renowned speakers will be sharing their knowledge and experience about the gold and copper industry in Colombia, Ecuador and Latin America.

Colombia & Ecuador as opportunity

Colombia, Ecuador and the Northern Andean region are host to untapped gold and copper resources with governments keen to promote foreign investment and the development of their natural resources.

Geology Short Course

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


The event – which has a national and international audience – seeks to focus on Colombia, Ecuador and the Northern Adean region as a target market for international mining investment, and is an opportunity to get up to date on the exploration and development of gold & copper projects in the region, 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.

Brent Cook

Brent Cook is an economic geologist and mining analyst who has been involved in the minerals exploration and mining business for 34 years. During this time he has evaluated and valued grassroots through feasibility stage projects involving nearly all deposit types in over 60 countries. In 1997 he got tired of promoters making all the money on questionable properties while he was left standing soaking wet in the jungle and joined Rick Rule at Global Resource Investments (now Sprott-Global). He was principal mining analyst at Global until going independent again in 2002. Since then he has been an independent analyst and advisor to several investment funds and high net worth individuals. He is also author of the investment letter Exploration Insights  which covers the mining sector, focusing on what he is buying, selling and avoiding with his own money.
