Toronto, Ontario, February 6, 2023 - Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL, OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the Company had a recent opportunity to host the new Vice Minister of Mines of Colombia, Giovanni Franco, at its operation facilities in Supia, Colombia. The Vice Minister was visiting the region as part of the Ministry of Mines and Energy’s Social Mining Forum, which is a communication-based platform to discuss mining between the Ministry and municipalities.
During the visit, the Company had the opportunity to present its “Collective” model to mining, which is based on honesty, transparency, education and open dialogue with its stakeholders. The Company reviewed in detail its business and social approach within the area of influence of the Guayabales and San Antonio projects as it relates to various sustainability initiatives and exploration methodologies.
Upon completion of the visit, the Vice Minister of Mines recorded a short video summarizing his thoughts, which includes the following statement:
“What we see in the advances made by Collective Mining over the past three years is what we would like to have in Colombia. We wish to have 10, 50, 100 companies like Collective Mining all around Colombia to improve the geoscientific knowledge of the country, to improve the understanding of the subsoil resources that we have in Colombia to define public policies to improve the extraction of our subsoil resources.”
