Sandfire MATSA Wins Gold Medal within the Huelva Province

Sandfire is committed to collaborating with our stakeholders to deliver a lasting, positive contribution to the communities in which we operate.

At our MATSA Copper Operations in south-western Spain, our team was recently awarded the ‘Gold Medal of the Province of Huelva’, from the Huelva Provincial council.

This award is granted by the council to individuals and companies who support the economic and social growth within the Huelva region.

Our team was recognised for the contribution they make to the development of the territory, particularly with the generation of employment opportunities within the region. Currently, MATSA’s activities generate 4,000 jobs (including direct, indirect and induced), and over 80% of our permanent workforce come from the neighbouring towns within Huelva.

We were also recognised for the positive social programs and local development initiatives that are run within the region.

Congratulations to our team for winning this award, and continuing to support the local communities in which we operate.

Sandfire MATSA CFO Enrique Gallar with President of the Huelva Provincial Council Ma Eugenia Limón.
