South America

The world’s fourth-largest continent, South America, extends from the Gulf of Darién in the northwest to the Tierra del Fuego archipelago in the south. South America is blessed with diverse agricultural products, vast mineral wealth and ports on the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean. The mining industry remains one of South America’s most important economic engines – the continent contains about one-fifth of the world’s iron ore reserves.
