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.
