The Group maintains the largest land area of concessions for precious metals exploration and mining in Mexico.
Exploration continues to be the key growth driver for the Fresnillo Group, in both greenfield and brownfield regions.
We focus on locating projects and properties with large tonnage that extend our resource base and with low-cost potential in Mexico and Latin America.
We do this through continuous investment in exploration irrespective of price cycles, and ongoing acquisition of mining concessions and surface land.
Our geologists have significant technical expertise and a proven track record of new discoveries.
We also look for opportunities to acquire early-stage projects with strong growth potential or to partner with other groups through agreements that allow us to share the inherent benefits and risks of prospect exploration.
This comprehensive approach results in a pipeline of projects that extend across the multiple stages of exploration (detection, discovery and definition) and ensure long-term organic growth.
The Group has four Exploration Offices – in Zacatecas, Toluca, Chihuahua and Hermosillo. Each has an HSECR programme focused on health, safety, environmental management systems and community engagement initiatives that allow us to build positive relationships from the earliest interactions.
Our long-term objective is to dicover and develop economically viable silver-gold deposits and to advance new and early stage prospects into the drilling and advanced exploration phases.
