Who we are
At Genomines, our mission is to pioneer a new era of sustainable mining by using genetically enhanced plants to extract metals from the ground (agromining).

Our ultimate goal is to become the world's first carbon-negative mining group, using sustainable, eco-friendly methods to extract the valuable resources our society needs.
