Exploration
in action

We have a solid asset base and a pipeline of projects spread across the Americas. Our strategy is to create value through optimising our current operations, extensive exploration and opportunistic acquisition of early stage projects.

Land package

We have an extensive and highly-
prospective land package with more
than one million hectares of
premium geological land.

Prospects

At the Prospects level, our goal is to
identify and define the potential of an
ore body through geological studies
and surface sampling.

Drill Testing

In order to progress the project in the pipeline,
drilling is conducted to confirm the potential for an
economic resource and possibly delineate an
inferred resource.

Greenfield exploration

Our exploration programme is focused on finding new, high-quality deposits and we are continually evaluating new opportunities throughout the Americas. In our greenfield exploration programme we develop our early stage projects that have the potential to move through the project pipeline from generative prospects, to the target delineation and testing stage and finally, through to the completion of a scoping study.

Growth Projects

The Company has three Growth Projects:
Crespo and Azuca in Peru and
the Volcan gold deposit in Chile.

Mine-sites and brownfield exploration

Our mine-sites and brownfield exploration programme is focused in and around the Company’s current mines and is aimed at optimising our core assets by increasing their life-of-mine and improving the quality of their resources. Exploration work is concentrated on the definition of new high grade structures and the incorporation of high quality resources. We also invest in advanced stage projects either located in or around the Company’s existing clusters, or in new mining-friendly districts.

Current operations

Since our IPO in 2006, we have
doubled the throughput capacity of our
operations and have delivered on all of
our annual production targets.
