Four mining projects will enter into production in Ecuador by 2025

Minister Bermeo advised that "through the second quarter of 2021, these four projects have generated 4,680 direct and indirect jobs, which demonstrates the confidence of investors in the current Government."

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The Ministry of Energy and Non-Renewable Resources informed this Friday (17) that by 2025, when the current legislature ends, four new mining projects would enter into production as part of its economic reactivation plan, which includes a relaunching of extractivism.

"After complying with the initial and advanced exploration periods, as well as the economic evaluation of the deposit, the projects La Plata (Cotopaxi), Loma Larga (Azuay), Curipamba (Bolivar), and Cascabel (Imbabura) will become mines to produce and export metallic minerals," says a statement from the ministry.
