Gold: State lost $50 mn despite better prices and sales

In 2019, the Bolivian state lost more than $50 million in gold mining revenues, despite increased sales of the gold and rising prices. Bolivia recorded 42 tons extracted with a value of nearly $2 billion, (the highest export of all minerals). It is because gold miners only pay a 2.5% share that applies to marginal deposits and not the corresponding 7%.
