Mission and Strategies
Capstone is focused on profitability, a growing production profile, and operating in a safe and responsible manner.
Capstone is committed to operating in a responsible manner, before, during and after mining, with initiatives to protect the environment and to enhance social development in the communities where we operate.

- Expansion of the Cozamin and Minto Mines
Capstone's continued focus on exploration has yielded great results with Cozamin Mine mill throughput tripled in four years, and the recent discovery of the Footwall Zone. Building on our exploration success, our discovery of ten deposits in six years at Minto Mine, has increased our mineral resources, more than doubled the mill throughput and has extended the mine life. We aim to continue ongoing exploration programs at both mines
- New Mines
Through its 70% ownership of the large scale Santo Domingo copper-iron-gold development project in Chile in partnership with Korea Resources Corp. and 100% owned Kutcho development, Capstone has the potential to boost its production by developing a third and fourth mine.
- Mergers and Acquisitions
Capstone has a strong balance sheet with growing capital and low debt, that could support a merger or acquisition of a mine or company that is in production. We are focused preferentially on copper assets located in the Americas in a safe and economically, politically and socially stable environment.
- Strong portfolio through investments and market opportunities
Capstone will occasionally look to opportunistically strengthen the company's position and increase our portfolio exposure to other metals through investments.
- Focus on efficiency and effectiveness
We continually strive to improve our effectiveness and efficiency, so we not only meet our goals, but continually look for ways to improve on what we do.
Capstone's goal is that every one of its workers returns home safely every day. Capstone has policies and procedures, training programs and enforcement designed to ensure this objective is met.
