About Us

aguia_logoAguia Resources Limited is a fertiliser company focused on the exploration and development of phosphate projects in Brazil to supply the Brazilian agriculture sector. Brazil is Latin America’s biggest economy and is heavily reliant on imports of up to 50 per cent of its phosphate needs. Aguia is well positioned to capitalise on the growing demand for phosphorus based fertilisers in the expanding agriculture sector in Brazil and controls three large projects, located close to existing infrastructure. The Company is committed to its existing projects whilst continuing to pursue other opportunities within the fertiliser sector.

Aguia is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange under the symbol AGR and has offices in Sydney, Australia and Porto Alegre, Brazil.
