    Sustainable Mining Outreach Promoted in the Osa Peninsula   The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – New ventures that help improve the quality of life of gold pickers, loggers and hunters in the Osa Peninsula will be led by Fundes in Costa Rica, in partnership with Crusa Foundation, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and the National System of Conservation Areas (Sinac).

    Such trades are common in the south, but for practices that generate environmental problems , such as the 250 gold collectors who invade the Corcovado National Park to extract the ore, it is virtually their only income.

    To address this problem, the project “Entrepreneurship and Biodiversity in the Osa Peninsula ” aims to develop, over a period of 10 months, community-based businesses that add value to the natural heritage  and are legally viable and economically profitable.

    The program is divided into four phases: diagnostic potential of the area, selection of entrepreneurs, business models and implementation.

    The diagnostic stage was conducted during September in order to identify the issues most marked in the area and potential groups for the project.

    Currently the program is in the second phase, in which there were four awareness talks in selected communities.

    The goal is to encourage future participants to join the project and through the training received by Fundes, equip them with the tools necessary for them to form their own business and be profitable over time.

    These talks are a filter to select entrepreneurs to comply with all the features needed to create a successful business.

    The park has 42,570 hectares of land and 5,375 hectares of sea which contains a variety of ecosystems, including forests, beaches, coral reefs, mangroves and freshwater swamps.

    The presence of abundant gold is due to a complex process of mineralization, according to data from Sinac. Gold is in the hills and secondary deposits can be found in streams and river banks.
