Setting the example for copper projects in Argentina.

Laying the groundwork for best practice in responsible mineral development.

Josemaria Resources is advancing a copper-gold project in San Juan Province, Argentina. Essential to a low-carbon future, copper is poised to be in high demand for decades to come. Josemaria works in partnership with the Lundin Foundation to lay the groundwork for best practices in responsible mineral development in Argentina.

Josemaria Resources and the Foundation work together to align with leading international standards for social and environmental sustainability to secure social license to operate and access to financing. The partnership approach reflects the company’s values of accountability, respect, integrity, honesty and transparency.

Drawing on experience from other Lundin Group mining projects — including Ecuador’s Fruta del Norte project the Foundation identifies opportunities to support economic diversification and develop local companies to become part of the mining supply chain. Josemaria supports a training program for small local companies to build the skills, resources and knowledge needed to grow their businesses.

In 2020, Josemaria donated vital personal protective equipment, test kits and sanitary supplies to support the public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic in rural communities in the project’s area of influence.
