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 Begins Construction on First Mercury Recovery Plant in Honduras

Using technology to create opportunities, strengthen communities and put an end to poisoning the environment.

On May 2, 2017 Raptor Mining broke ground in El Corpus, Honduras to construct a 27-acre facility which will be the first mercury recovery plant in Honduras. This pilot project, spearheaded by Ernie Valle, is the first of its kind but is invaluable to the future of Honduran people and their environment. Once constructed, the new Raptor Mining plant will receive all the land material that has been contaminated for many years, and we will recycle it, extract the mercury and harvest the minerals.

Currently used artisanal mining practices create vast amounts of waste which destroys the environment and is detrimental to the health of the local communities. That’s why our team is working around the clock to bring this vision to life by January 2018, and provide the people of Honduras with a future full of opportunities in a much cleaner and safer environment.

With the success of this plant, Raptor Mining can continue to expand to different areas of need, and provide the resources to improve schools and medical facilities, while strengthening the community as a whole.
