Brownfield Exploration

We are aiming not only to increase the life-of-mine of our assets but also the quality of our resources. We have a long and successful track record of discovering low cost resource additions and are currently executing a comprehensive programme at all our deposits across Peru and Argentina.


  • Focused on adding additional high grade resources close to main Angela vein
  • Titan geophysical surveys being employed
  • Extensive infill drilling programme
  • Strong potential in wider district



  • Exploring to the north and south of current operations
  • Drilling exciting Cochaloma and Pablo Sur targets in 2020
  • Titan geophysical surveys scheduled at Selene

San Jose

  • Focused on near-mine targets and Aguas Vivas deposit to north west
  • Also exploring close to Newmont’s Cerro Negro deposit to the south
  • San Jose district still under-explored


Other brownfield projects

During 2019, a considerable range of preparatory geological work and permit applications was carried out on a number of Hochschild’s former mines and near-term projects with the result that in 2020, the brownfield team intends to drill a number of targets across the Company’s southern Peru cluster subject to the receipt of final exploration permits. In addition to work mentioned above at the Corina and Ares deposits, this includes: Titan geophysics and drilling at the former Selene mine; geophysics and a drilling programme at Arcata; drilling at the Crespo project; and drilling at the Huacullo area, which is adjacent to Azuca.
