Cochabamba has the lowest royalty and 70% of the gold leaves without taxation

Cochabamba has the lowest mining revenues in the country. In 2020 it generated only 2 per cent of the 914 million bolivianos obtained at the national level. According to the government, this situation is especially prevalent in gold mining, as it estimates that more than 70 per cent of the mineral extracted does not pay royalties or does so in another department.
