Location And Access
The PV Mine is located in Sonora, one of Mexico’s safest states with a long history of copper mining. Sonora also represents Mexico’s most important state in terms of mining production and in particular, copper production. Piedras Verdes is the third largest copper mine in Sonora and in Mexico.
The PV Mine is strategically well-positioned in Sonora. It is ~20 km predominately by paved roads from the town of Álamos (population 9,000), and ~50 km from the town of Navojoa (population 160,000). Both towns offer employees the opportunity to live in attractive surroundings with access to excellent schools and universities and provide Piedras Verdes a large and qualified human resource base.
Ciudad Obregón Airport has 10 commercial flights daily and is also 22 km from the 5,000 foot paved runway at Álamos.
