Buenaventura is Peru's largest publicly-traded precious metals company and a major holder of mining rights in Peru. The Company is engaged in the mining, processing, development and exploration of gold, silver and other metals via wholly-owned mines, as well as through its participation in joint exploration projects.
Buenaventura currently operates seven mines in Peru (Orcopampa, Uchucchacua, Antapite, Julcani, Recuperada, Shila-Paula and Ishihuinca), has controlling interests in one mining company (El Brocal) and minority interests in other mining companies in Peru.
Buenaventura has minority interests in several other mining companies, including a significant ownership interest in Yanacocha (43.65%), via a partnership with Newmont Mining, one of the most important gold mining companies in the world, and Cerro Verde (18.50%), an important Peruvian copper producer located in the southern Peru.

Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other
geological materials from the earth, usually from an ore body, vein or (coal)
seam. Materials recovered by mining include base metals, precious metals, iron,
uranium, coal, diamonds, limestone, oil shale, rock salt and potash. Any
material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created
artificially in a laboratory or factory, is usually mined. Mining in a wider
sense comprises extraction of any non-renewable resource.
