Intag is situated in Northwestern Ecuador. In the 1990s Bishimetal, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi, found evidence of a large copper deposit lying in the bowels of the biodiverse Toisan Range. In 1997 it was forced to abandon the project. In 2012 CODELCO, Ecuador’s state-owned mining company moved to revive the project as part of a government to government agreement.
