The Project involves the development of a 300 tons/day (20,000 oz. annual capacity) gold mining operation in the central mountain range of Colombia. The Project has a licensed concession on 100 hectares of the Magdalena River National Forest Reserve and will use open-pit mining methods to access mineral deposits near the surface and at a later stage underground mining for deeper deposits. The Project involves the construction of mining facilities including internal and external material transport roads; equipment for extraction; beneficiation process (crushing and milling, cyanide and precipitation, recirculation and smelting); auxiliary operations of tailings storage and management, laboratory, worker camps, heliport, and progressive mine closure.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
