Batero Gold is based in Vancouver, Canada, but our Batero-Quinchia project is Colombian to the core. Our Colombian partners, including senior Batero Executives and other local supporters share our vision, have vested interests in the company and are committed to the project's success. Why? Because before we put a single drill bit into the ground to measure the economic potential, we explored both the environmental impacts and the human potential.
Our technical and management team had already been working in the area for over a decade and has helped build a strong local support base. We hired an anthropologist/ethno botanist to produce baseline socio-economic and environmental studies. Together, we devised strategies to not only preserve but enhance the local coffee farming industry, improve water quality and standards of living for everyone in the immediate area. We hire locally and invest in community programs. The result? Strong support on the ground. Mutual respect. The right environment for sustainable success.
