Honduras: Mining Park Tender Fails

The companies that took part in the prequalification did not meet the minimum requirements for the project set by Coalianza for the construction and operation of an industrial mining park.

Monday, November 9, 2015

From a statement issued by Coalianza:

The Technical Committee of the International Public Tender for Procurement of an Investor Operator for the Design Financing, Exploration, Exploitation, Operation and Marketing of a 200 hectare Industrial Mining Park Project in the Community of San Juan Arriba, Municipality of El Corpus Department of Choluteca, Honduras, wishes to communicate to all interested companies and the general public that the companies / consortiums participating in the process did not comply with the minimum requirements set out in the prequalification document therefore, the process was declared void by the Project Technical Committee . Immediate actions are being taken to relaunch the international public tender as soon as possible.

It should be noted that in August the deadline was reached for submission of documentation for prequalification of the mining project, and that bids were submitted by one Honduran company and a consortium of Chilean-Honduran companies.
