There is a gold streak with an estimated production of about 13 to 14 grams of gold per tone according to laboratory studies. Although today the area is concessioned to miners who have not paid more than one hundred thousand dollars in taxes, so the area will then be filed and reverted to the state; however, it is not known if the government will reconsider it again for a recent reform of the law.

The tropical flora is prolific (orchids, bananas, walnuts, guayacans, lime trees, tamarinds, nettles, etc.) and the fauna is endemic and abundant with diverse species of birds (toucans, owls, hummingbirds, parrots, etc.), of mammals (armadillos, wild boars, monkeys, anteaters, sloths, spectacled bears, etc.) and numerous amphibians and reptiles. Some hectares of the land (1 / 70th or 6 hectares) are outside the Protective Forest, therefore they can be used to build an eco-tourism complex, a study and environmental research center, for example. Although now that is the area where mahogany has been starved.
