We are Mexico’s leading producer of zinc and lead. Our Fresnillo plc subsidiary is the world's leading silver producer and Mexico’s leading gold producer.
We focus on maintaining safe, sustainable mining operations while respecting communities and the environment.
We expanded our operations with the start-up of the Capela polymetallic mining unit in Guerrero state.
Peñoles operates five mining units in Mexico; four of them produce zinc, lead and copper concentrates; and the Milpillas mine produces copper cathodes.
In the value chain, mines perform extraction, milling and beneficiation of mineral ore containing lead, zinc and copper. Our most polymetallic units are Sabinas, Tizapa and Capela, they also produce gold and silver in concentrates.
