Our Meeting with Carlos Pineda Fasquelle

This year has been a great one for Raptor Mining as we continue to find supporters in Honduras who share our vision of Mercury-Free Mining. At our recent Q&A and presentation event, we had the pleasure of meeting with Carlos Pineda Fasquelle, Deputy Minister of Environment, Mines and Energy. Like us he wishes to find various alternatives so there’s safe mining to protect the community and his personal heritage.

Raptor Mining aims to change the unfortunate circumstances created by artisanal and small-scale mining. We hope to achieve this through raising awareness and education to empower and enable the people in these communities to maintain a better standard of living without sacrificing their health.
