J.K. Mining Corporation is a gold and silver exploration, development and production mining company with interests based in Ecuador and Peru. Our vision is to be one of the highest valued and most respected mining companies by leading the industry in performance.

J.K. Mining Corporation’s interest in Ecuador lies in the southern province of Zamora-Chinchipe, near the city of Zamora and lies in a region of ancient volcanism. The area has been known to be rich in gold and silver for centuries and has experienced significant recent growth due to the discovery of a number of recent mineral veins of note. The mining industry in Ecuador is still in its infancy, with large unexplored areas that are potentially rich in gold, silver and copper.

J.K. Mining Corporation’s mining interests in Peru lie in the Cajamarca Region, approximately 45 kilometers to the south west of the city of Jaen and situated in a prolific gold and silver producing region of northern Peru. The project is located within a flexure of a thrust and fold belt of tertiary volcanism that runs the entire length of Peru and contains some of the world’s most prospective gold mines, including Lagunas Norte and Yanacocha, two of the world’s largest gold mines.

Sustainable development is central to J.K. Mining Corporation’s strategy and is integrated into every facet of our operations. We have deployed a practical framework which is developed from a strong set of principles to help us to deliver on this commitment and our practices will continually develop as we seek out ways to improve our performance.
