Exploration at MMG is focused around existing infrastructure at Las Bambas, Kinsevere, Rosebery and Dugald River. At Las Bambas we are actively exploring our 25 x 14km leases for new skarn and porphyry ore bodies, while at Kinsevere we are concentrating on oxide orebodies within a 50km radius of the plant. Exploration at Rosebery and Dugald River is focussed on extending the existing ore zones.


The Geoscience group is responsible for governance of the company’s geological activities, ensuring Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves quality and legal compliance, and providing geotechnical input into Mergers and Acquisitions/Business Development.
