Magma Coltan is a Costa Rican firm seeking to support technological development and evolution, providing coltan (tantalum) produced sustainably in Latin America in adherence to law, protecting the environment and guaranteeing the highest quality standards in both product and production process.
We provide coltan that is legally produced in Latin America, carefully selected and enriched with a special mineral. Our customers receive a better quality ore with the peace of mind and confidence that the alloy is uncontaminated by the problems of tantalum mining in the Congo – child labor and the financing of criminal activities – that tarnish the future benefit of devices using technologies taking advantage of tantalum's qualities.
Our presence in Costa Rica gives our customers from different continents the ability to choose the shipping means best suited to their needs as well as shipping routes via the Atlantic or Pacific oceans.
Magma Coltan is a member of the American Chamber of Commerce. Our product's quality and composition is certified by Costa Rica University's Geology and Chemistry Departments. The alloy process patent is under process in Europe, USA and Central America.
Our offices are located in the Plaza Roble Business Center in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica – a modern center where such multinationals as Citibank, Microsoft, Cisco and others have their offices. Our office is equipped with cutting-edge systems and facilities to handle our customer’s needs during their visits to our country.
The strategic Escazu location is just across the street from the country’s most modern shopping mall and next to the Intercontinental Hotel, with several other hotel chains only 5 minutes away, along with a wide variety of restaurants for all tastes.
Costa Rica is noted for its stability. It has no standing army, and its citizens enjoy one of the highest life expectancies in the Western hemisphere and better living standards than most other Central Americans.
Costa Rica has positioned itself as a key destination for the operations of multinationals in a variety of industries such as advanced manufacturing, medical devices and services. Over 200 global companies have chosen to establish facilities in Costa Rica.
Costa Rica ranks fourth worldwide in high-tech exports (World Development Indicators 2008, World Bank) and is one of the most competitive destinations in Latin America for service operations (A.T. Kearney, Destination Latin America: A Near-Shore Alternative 2009)
