GlobeStar Mining -- Cerro de Maimon

In November 2008, staff writer Susan Kirwin attended GlobeStar Mining’s grand opening ceremony for the Cerro de Maimon open pit copper-gold mine in the Dominican Republic. Located 70 km northwest of Santa Domingo, it’s the company’s first mine to go in production. The US$69-million capital project created about 150 jobs in an area with a high unemployment rate. The company expects to produce 229 million lbs. copper, 130 oz. gold and 4.1 million oz. silver between 2008 and 2017.
