His great achievements also include creation of US$ 20 billion in value with the operation of eight gold mines in Brazil and Canada and a silver mine in Chile. He is known for his generous donations and superstition. All his companies have the letter X in their names since Batista believes that this letter draws money.

He has two main goals in his life, to become the wealthiest person on the planet and to transform Rio de Janeiro into one of the world's most dynamic cities.
