Programme CGS 2021

CGS2021 will provide updates on the leading copper and gold projects in the region. The global move towards electrification and decarbonisation means demand for the red metal is increasing and exploration interest is picking up. Colombia has launched auction rounds for copper exploration areas as the country seeks to benefit from its copper endowment as explorers in Ecuador continue to make important discoveries. Interest in gold exploration is also increasing with a number of new entrants into the region as well as projects progressing through economic studies and permitting.
