About Minera San Cristóbal S.A.
Located in the province of Nor Lípez in the Department of Potosí, our company is the most important mining undertaking of Bolivia. In our operations, we combine the use of state-of-the-art technology with a constant qualification of our workers, a strict control of industrial and occupational health and safety, environmental preservation and social commitment to the communities. We aim to contribute to development of the region where we operate, the Department of Potosí and the country as a whole.
San Cristóbal ranks as one of the largest deposits of zinc, lead and silver in the world. It is a low-grade but bulk mineable deposit, which is why the open-pit method is used. The operation focuses on the production of zinc-silver and lead-silver mineral concentrates. At present, it is the largest mining operation in the history of Bolivia.
