As the Clavo Rico mine continues to become more successful, this success will continue to improve the already strong, mutually beneficial relationship between Inception and the local communities. In addition to employment directly by the mine, subcontracted firms that supply mine goods and services also benefit with employment that is often equal to or much higher than direct mine employment.
The infrastructure creation required by the mining operation also facilitates the development of other economic opportunities. Building new roads improves access to areas and integrates them to the national economy. Some of the most important infrastructure expenditures by Inception and its predecessors have included the construction or upgrading of local roads, schools, and hospitals.
More broadly, the Honduran government is generally open to foreign investment, with limited restrictions and performance requirements. Low labor costs, proximity to the U.S. market, and the Caribbean port of Puerto Cortés all facilitate the operations of the Clavo Rico mine and make Honduras attractive to investors.
