Mining

Introduction
As Mining is a main sector of the economy, and has a high profit potential, BITEXCO Group intends to make it a part of its core business.

BITEXCO Group is proud to be the first private investor and the first Vietnamese company outside Petro Vietnam that participates in oil & gas exploration. Bitexco Oil & Gas Ltd, a subsidiary of BITEXCO Group, was specifically founded to develop this sector. Through two subsidiaries and four affiliates, BITEXCO Group is active in the field of mineral mining. It mines gold, copper, iron ore and other mineral deposits, so far in the provinces of Lao Cai, Ha Tinh, Thanh Hoa and in country of Laos. BITEXCO Group is actively seeking new investment opportunities in Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, and other Southeast Asian countries.

Minerals

BITEXCO Group has been contributing capital for mineral projects in the province of Lao Cai, including the Ta Phoi copper mine, the Minh Luong gold mine, and the Khe Lech and Quy Sa iron mines. Its partners are mostly state-owned companies such as Vietnam National Coal, Mineral Industries Holding Corporation Limited (Vinacomin), Minerals Corporation, and Lao Cai Minerals Company. These partners have professional experience and a solid reputation in the industry, and are capable of promoting the success of the projects in terms of funding, technical exploitation and minerals processing.

BITEXCO also contributes capital to Dong Duong Xanh Joint Stock Company, the National Oil and Gas Group (Petro Vietnam), the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV), and Ocean Bank as investment in executing research, exploration, and evaluation of the iron, copper and gold reserves in Tinh Xieng Khoang and Attopu, both cities in Laos.

BITEXCO has associated with experienced partners, state - owned companies and foreign corporations to develop ongoing projects. In the future, BITEXCO Group will expand its mining investments to become a direct investor in order to build its reputation as a leading multi-industry corporation in Vietnam.

Oil & Gas

By strategically investing in oil & gas, BITEXCO Group and foreign partner Pearl Oil Pte since early 2010 established a partnership contract for exploration and production sharing (PSC) of an offshore area with Petro Vietnam. BITEXCO has also cooperated with several business partners to research investment opportunities in the oil and gas sector in 

Vietnam as well as other countries in the area, such as Indonesia, Myanmar, Peru and Russia.
In the future, BITEXCO will continue working with partners who have the capacity and experience in this sector to expand its investments, aiming to develop oil and gas as another element of its core business.
