Geological Surveys

Knowledge about investment opportunities in exploration and mining are an important factor to strengthen the economic ties between the EU and Latin America. Opportunities in exploration and mining are usually made public and kept up-to-date by either the Geological Survey of the country in question or the relevant mining authorities. This section summarizes possible sources of current investment opportunities in each of the participating countries and provides the links to their homepages.
