From the National Congress statement:

September 26, 2019. The National Congress approved on Wednesday reforms by adding several articles of the General Mining Law, an initiative that aims to regulate mining and metallurgical activities in the country.

It is important to note that previously the articles that were reformed had been declared unconstitutional.

With the approval of this decree, the execution of exploration, exploitation and benefit activities must be carried out in accordance with the international standards contained in the agreements signed by Honduras on environmental protection, so that public health and safety should not be compromised.
