Foreign Investment

Since the introduction of new mining legislation in 2004,  foreign investment in mineral exploration and development has increased significantly over the last 6 years.  In 2004 Turkey had only one operating gold mine in comparison to today where there are 4 active gold mines producing over 38 MT* of gold per annum.

A comprehensive legal framework exists in Turkey to aid foreign direct investment into the country.  The aim of Turkey's foreign investment law is to encourage new direct investors, protect investor's rights and introduce international standards to all aspects of foreign investment.   For more information please visit Invest in Turkey

* Estimated 2010 gold production figure from the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources.
