Mexico has a long and storied mining history that dates back to the Aztecs. The nation’s geology represents a treasure trove of natural resources, including gold, silver and copper.

The Sierra Madres region in Northern Mexico was home to many historic artisanal mining camps where precious metals and copper were mined close to surface.

Now, modern exploration technologies such as aerial drones and advanced geophysical surveys are enabling new exploitation in areas of known copper mineralization — much like the oil companies that have sparked a revolution in the country’s oil and gas sector, using modern drilling techniques to revitalize existing wells and add new zones in existing fields.

Mexico a global leader in metals production

Mexico is the 11th-largest economy in the world and the second largest in Latin America. The country owes its prominent rank in large part to its longstanding and thriving mining industry, which is expected to grow by 3.3 percent annually to reach a value of $17.8 billion in 2020.

Mining investment in Mexico is projected to have reached a total of $5 billion in 2017, up 33 percent from 2016, according to Mexico’s mining chamber, and will continue that pace in 2018. Nearly half of that total comes from foreign investors, reported Reuters.
