About Us


Cobre del Mayo is a Mexican mining company that operates the Piedras Verdes open-pit copper mine (“PV mine”), the third largest copper mine in Mexico as measured by production. We produce LME Grade A copper cathode and sell high-grade ore to Kupari Metals to produce copper concentrate.

We process our mineral by run-of-mine (ROM) heap leach, crushed ore heap leach, and sell high-grade crushed ore for flotation. Our operations are based on state of the art technologies that allow us to select the most efficient process for our ore depending on its grade, rock type and other characteristics.

Our purpose is to continue operating the PV mine in a safe and environmentally responsible way, establishing long-lasting relationships with the communities near our operations, where we strive to make a positive impact.

Our corporate strategy is focused on stable operation with low capital expenditures, diversifying our operational risk through our different processes, taking full advantage of opportunities to reduce cash costs, and generating quality jobs for our people.

We are pursuing this strategy by:


Improving our operational performance through disciplined capital investments

Maintaining sound labor relations and a conservative financial profile

Seeking opportunities to invest in complementary mining assets

Focusing on safety and operational excellence as well as on community relations
