Project “La Euforia”

In January of 2013 EXUMAX ran a small scale project within Río Rayo farm (Tarazá – Antioquia), with the intent to demonstrate our capacity to remove mercury that has been left to contaminate areas by previous mining activities. This project was done in the Pajonales valley which had suffered an influx of contaminated tailings which had buried the natural river course. In this project we showed our ability to:

  • Change land degraded by traditional mining damage
  • Create landscapes desired by landowners or communities
  • Remove legacy contamination in the form of mercury
