Much of the ore was mined from the Crucitas deposit (north), near the Nicaraguan border. The Canadian mining company Infinito Gold had planned to exploit it, but the Costa Rican justice banned it to protect the environment. However, the deposit, spanning 70 hectares, has been overrun by underground miners who mine for gold causing severe environmental damage through the use of cyanide and mercury to refine the ore.

The dismantled network was devoted to the purchase of the precious metal directly from the clandestine miners of Crucitas. They also bought, to a lesser extent, gold illegally mined from a deposit located in the Corcovado Natural National Park, on the Pacific coast, in the southwest of Costa Rica . The network then took care of the export of gold, melted into ingots. Thirty-three searches were carried out in "several parts of the country" during this "large-scale" operation, explained Mr. Espinoza.
