WELCOME TO GUYANA
The World's Fastest Growing Emerging Market
Guyana is a vibrant South American nation characterized by its lush rainforests, pristine rivers, and diverse cultural heritage. Located on the northeastern coast of the continent, it is the only English-speaking country in South America.
In 2022, Guyana had an impressive 62% increase to its GDP, positioning it as the fastest growing economy in the world, and, is predicted to continue its remarkable growth by double digits over the next 5 years, due in part to the historic EU-Guyana Timber Agreement.
Building upon its 30-year strategic network in the region, Holder Resources, Inc (HRI) has evolved into a key player in both gold mining and sustainable logging in Guyana, utilizing innovative sustainability initiatives to prioritize both community and conservation.

Harmonizing Heritage and Innovation
Founded on the legacy of the Mishleau family, whose mining roots date back to the 1930s, HRI has evolved to be a key player in both gold mining and sustainable logging in Guyana, South America.
Lance and Chad Mishleau, the CEO and Managing Directors of HRI, respectively, follow in the footsteps of their Grandfather Jack, who was one of the First American Businessmen in Guyana after the country opened to foreign investment in 1993.
Today, in addition to significant Gold and Diamond operations, Holder Resources is expanding its focus into the sustainable logging opportunity that has come as a result of the European Union’s Agreement to source timber from Guyana.
