As part of the implementation of the project for capacity building in the mining sector (PRECA- SEM), it is planned to collect 18,000 samples from mining sites to produce 13 geological 1:200 000 scale maps. Besides, capacity buil- ding for mining sector stakeholders continued through training. In the first half of 2017, gold production was 344.7 kg and CAPAM returned 150.8 kg to the public treasury.
 The added value in the mining industries moves back of 3,5 %
