The Guiana Shield is a highly mineralised geological formation that stretches over 415,000 square kilometres in South America. 

Records of near surface gold mining in the Guiana Shield exist as far back as the 16th Century. Numerous artisanal miners continue to operate across all the countries that host the formation using techniques ranging from the most basic gold panning to more complex ‘open pit’ and underground operations. 

The rocks of the Guiana Shield consist of metasediments and metavolcanics (greenstones) overlain by sub-horizontal layers of sandstonesquartzitesshales and conglomerates intruded by sills of younger mafic intrusives such as gabbros.
