About Sandfire

Company Overview

As one of the largest copper-focused companies on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX:SFR), Sandfire is transforming into a global copper producer of significance.

With a demonstrated commitment to the highest safety standards, we mine copper sustainably to energise the future.

Copper continues to play a vital role in the electrification and decarbonisation of the global economy. With modern processing hubs in two highly prospective copper belts, attractive development options, and exciting exploration prospects, Sandfire is well placed to support the green energy transition.

Our dedication to operating our business to the highest standards of safety, responsibility and sustainability has been recognised through receipt of numerous awards including: Prospectors of the Year; Best Australian Explorer; Developer of the Year; Hard Rock Mine of the Year; and in 2019, the Golden Gecko Award for Environmental Excellence.

Sandfire’s early growth and success stemmed from the discovery of the high-grade DeGrussa copper-gold deposit, located 900km north-east of Perth in Western Australia, which it successfully brought into production in less than three years – setting new records for the drill-out, permitting, financing, development and construction of new resource projects in Australia.

The strong cash-flows generated by the DeGrussa operations have provided us with the platform to grow and diversify across the globe, through the transformational US$1.865 billion acquisition of the MATSA operations in Spain, and the development of our new, modern long-life copper mine in Botswana, the Motheo Copper Mine.

The MATSA operations located in the Huelva Province of south-western Spain, include a world-class polymetallic operation with three underground mines and a modern 4.7Mtpa processing facility. MATSA is a large-scale, long-life base metals asset that allows Sandfire to leverage its strong mining, processing and exploration expertise.

The broader MATSA portfolio offers exceptional exploration upside, and together with Sandfire’s emerging operations in Botswana, is expected to become the backbone of the Company’s business for the next decade and beyond.

The Company has an unwavering commitment to maintaining outstanding environmental and social performance – and was one of the pioneers for the introduction of renewable energy to Australia’s mining industry with the solar farm at the DeGrussa operation in Western Australia, which was the largest off-grid solar farm in Australia.

Sandfire’s values, principles and skills in copper mining and exploration have been instrumental to its success to date – and will continue to define its growth path into the future, as we continue to establish the foundations to deliver safe, consistent and predictable long term performance at our MATSA operations in the Iberian Pyrite Belt and Motheo operations in the Kalahari Copper Belt.
