The project is located in the Bajo Cauca area of the Nordeste Antioqueño region. The generation of added value in the region is composed of social, community and personal services (41.2%), trade, hospitality and restaurants (19%), mining activities (11.1%), agricultural and livestock activities (9.8%) and industrial activities (9.8%) (Chamber of Commerce of Medellín, 2017). The department's Secretary of Mining and the 2010 Antioquia Mining Census reported that 19% of mining operations are legal and 81% illegal; and the sub-regions with the greatest environmental, social and unlawfulness problems related to mining include Bajo Cauca (Contraloría General de Antioquia, 2011). Due to the fact that the town seat is located on the plains of the Nechí River and its tributaries, the community mainly eats fish, meat and rice.
