Raptor Mining’s 4-Year Journey

Raptor Mining’s 4-Year Journey

An Extensive Look into Raptor Mining’s 4-Year Journey to Becoming the First Mercury Recovery Plant in Honduras.

From birth the instinct moves us forward. 4 years ago we traveled to Honduras. We visited a place called El Corpus, where artisanal mining is carried out. It is here that our great story begins. We started investing. Taking samples to calculate the danger that the miner and others living in this municipality, are being exposed to. What we found led us on a mission to recover toxic mercury and revolutionize the mining industry with a health conscious approach.

Raptor Mining’s objective is to create a positive change by reinventing the process of mining and to extend the life of the environment and the people who live there, in a matter which does not compromise the lifestyle and cultural sensibilities of their lives.

Raptor Mining Meets with Honduras Second Presidential Designate Rossana Guevara

Sharing a Vision of a Beautiful Future for Honduras with Rossana Guevara

Last month, Raptor Mining had the opportunity to meet with Rossana Guevara, the second Presidential Designate of Honduras. During a very productive meeting, we shared our vision for a cleaner and safer Honduras and discussed how the first mercury recovery plant being constructed in El Corpus will help to achieve that.

Raptor Mining embraces this opportunity to establish a mutually beneficial and impactful relationship with Honduras and its people for many years to come.

Presenting Our Vision

We take great pride in the fact that we recently broke ground and commenced construction of our new 27-acre mining facility in El Corpus Honduras, which started construction in May. Our facility will include the main plant, offices for administrative staff, and an area for employee services. This facility will aim to provide numerous benefits to our workers to make their lives easier, such as:

  • Company Provided Meals
  • On-Site Company Physician
  • Exercise Equipment
  • Child Care
  • Laundering Facilities
  • And More…

Our projected completion date for the facility will be in late 2017, with the plant being fully operational and running on all cylinders by January 1, 2018.

We look forward to providing life changing benefits and employment opportunities to the people of El Corpus Honduras. We will also be heading up various infrastructure projects within the community through our nonprofit organization, Step Up for Honduras, which we anticipate will increase the quality of life for the community members. Raptor Mining embraces this opportunity to establish a mutually beneficial and impactful relationship with Honduras and its people for many years to come.

Raptor Mining and El Corpus Clean Up Project

Environmental Clean Up in El Corpus, Honduras

This September, Raptor Mining had the honor of signing the contract for the very FIRST environmental mercury cleanup project in the entire municipality of El Corpus, Department of Choluteca.

El Corpus is a mining town made up of 17 villages which have all been decimated by the effects of artisanal mining practices.  These traditional methods use mercury which destroys the environment and the health of the local communities.

Raptor Mining is an eco-friendly mining company devoted to using environmentally safe practices to profitably and safely recover gold and mercury from Honduras while sharing profits with the local communities where we operate.
