Gold Mining in Ecuador

With a strong minerals market, favourable government regulations, rich deposits and a strong industry presence, Ecuador is an incredibly attractive investment opportunity for Australian companies.

According to The Fraser Institute's 2021 annual survey of mining and exploration companies, Ecuador is the second most attractive destination in Latin America for mining investment. It's also notable for hosting some of the most attractive gold, silver and copper deposits in the region, many of which remain underexplored. The country's government, meanwhile, has been open about its plan to support mining industry growth.

Thus far, that plan has largely succeeded, with Ecuador's mining exports increasing by 74 percent in 2021. With investments by several powerhouse mining companies and increasing demand for the country's major mineral exports, the coming years will likely see similar growth. Moreover, because Australia is already a major investor in Ecuador, the two countries have existing multiple bilateral agreements in place.
