Mines in Operation

Mines in Operation

100_5313 © Special Report by Rojas & Asociados

During the last 20 years, the results of exploration in Argentina changed  notoriously the scene of the mining activity throughout the country. In the 80’s only two or three mines were in operation; the 1990’s  gave room for the start of production of important mineral deposits, some of them world-class.

At the moment, the country has the largest number of mines in operation in its history. Among them there are 12 metalliferous mines: Veladero, Martha, Cerro Vanguardia, San Jose, Alumbrera, Pirquitas, Gualcamayo, Manantial Espejo, Aguilar, Farallón Negro, Andacollo and Sierra Grande. Also, several industrial mineral deposits such as Salar del Hombre Muerto, Tincalayu, and Loma Blanca, as well as coal from Río Turbio and rodocrosite -a semi precious stone- in Capillitas.
