Guatemalas Mining Industry is being used by the United States to mine gold mines, according to a report published in the International Business Times (IBT).
According to the report, which was prepared by Guatemalan mining experts at the Guatemala Institute of Technology, Guatemalan authorities have developed the technology to mine the world’s largest gold reserves in the Andes.
In Guatemala, the gold-mining industry has been heavily subsidized by the country’s mining giant, Grupo Minero.
The IGT said that the new technology, known as an “anomalous-pulse mining system,” could enable Guatemala to mine around 20 tons of gold a day.
According to Guatemalan officials, the mining industry has not been able to produce a significant amount of gold from the mines since 2009 due to the government’s “abandonment of its mining program.”
Despite this, the IGT also pointed out that a significant number of Guatemalos lives have been lost due to mining.
The report stated that Guatemala’s mining sector was valued at $1.2 billion dollars in 2015.
The government of Guatemala is not the only country that has been accused of using gold mines to mine for gold.
In May, a report from the European Parliament revealed that a large part of Argentina’s gold reserves are located in Guatemala.
