Mapping the Mega Mining Project


The Map of The Orinoco Mining Arc (Do not copy without prior permission)
* For bigger image and clarity, please click here

Gold, coltan, illegal mines, malaria, environment, money... So many things we can explain the Venezuelan Orinoco Mining Arc Project. Amidst of economic downturn, Venezuela opened up to massive transnational foreign investment for massive mining project. Venezuela is home to one of the biggest reserves of gold and coltan in the world (something we do not associate with Venezuela - home to world's largest reserves of oil)

This map I designed above documents the key things that would be affected by the Mining Project and also impact of artesanal mining (often illegal) in Orinoco region. While it is difficult to locate and place every possible impact of the project, these three maps will navigate you the context of the project
