Intro: Top Mexican mining companies are on the rise as leading global producers of gold, silver and copper despite the amount of international competition in the market. These companies have a long history in the sector and actively work to maintain their spot at the head of the pack but foreign competitors continue to be a threat. In 2015, 75 percent of all foreign capital in the sector came from Canada, via FDI or indirectly through the TSX. There are 205 companies with Canadian capital established in Mexico not to mention companies from other mining jurisdictions such as Australia.
This chapter showcases national companies that have dared to take on the challenge of not only incorporating new international standards but also raising the benchmark through best practices. It also shines a spotlight on national supply chain companies that continuously add real value to mining operations.
