Tucked away in the hills of northeastern Colombia, a gold mine led by Canada’s Greystar has split local communities between those who call it a blessing and environmentalists who brand it a curse. The Angostura project illustrates one risk facing new oil and mining operations in Colombia, where increased security is attracting a wave of foreign investors to exploit rich resources even as environmentalists push for stricter control.
Greystar is listed on London’s Alternative Investment Market.
