Auplata is a gold mining exploration and operation Group, founded in July 2004, stock-market listed on Euronext Growth since December 2006. Since it was founded, Auplata has operated a strategy aimed at developing and exploiting Guianese gold resources with the strong involvement of local players. This territory, virtually untapped in terms of industrial extraction of gold, has massive gold potential geologically, comparable to West Africa. Auplata’s objective is to offer long-term extraction for the Guianese mining industry. In March 2016, the Board of Directors approved and launched a transformation project to devote all the Company's economic and human resources to deploying cyanidation processing plants at the Dieu Merci site, and subsequently at Yaou (currently being set up).
