La Pita Mine

print
The La Pita mine is one of the more recently discovered emerald deposits in Colombia. It lies between Muzo and Cosquez in the Maripi mining district of the Boyaca Department along the aptly named Rio Minero (translates to Mining River). This mine is thought to contain one of the largest emerald deposits in Colombia and has become arguably the most commercially important emerald mine currently being exploited in Colombia, accounting for 60 to 70 percent of the annual Colombian emerald production. In recent years production has been intentionally slowed at La Pita to stabilize emerald price trends. The La Pita mine is mined by Santa Rosa LTDA and Prominas Dal Zulia LTDA.
