Our vision is to be valued by our stakeholders as a sustainablecompany and a leader in the precious metals industry
Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. is a Canadian precious metals mining company with mines and projects in the Americas and West Africa. We produce silver and gold and generate shared value over the long term for our shareholders and stakeholders through efficient production, environmental protection, and social responsibility. Sustainability is integral to all our operations and relationships.
We have mines and projects in Argentina, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Mexico, and Peru. Our corporate office is in Vancouver, Canada, and our management head office is in Lima, Peru.
Responsible extraction of metals and minerals is crucial to building a greener, safer, and more sustainable future. The products we mine – silver, gold, lead, and zinc – are essential building blocks for modern living. They contribute to healthcare, water and energy supply, construction, clean technology, and innovation.
Mining with Pride and Purpose
At Fortuna, we understand sustainability as creating long-term economic, social, and environmental value for our stakeholders. Our culture is defined by our core values of health and safety, our environment, respect for our communities, operational excellence, and integrity.
Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. was created in 2005. Initially, the company focussed on silver opportunities in Latin America but grew to evaluate silver and gold assets globally. We purchased the Caylloma silver-lead-zinc mine in Arequipa, Peru, in 2005 and, by 2009, had also acquired a 100% interest in the San Jose project, Mexico, building to commercial production in 2011. The two mines grew steadily, and in 2016, we acquired the Lindero Gold Project in Salta, Argentina. Our first gold pour at Lindero occurred in late 2020. In mid-2021, we expanded into West Africa by acquiring the Yaramoko Mine in Burkina Faso and the advanced development stage Séguéla Gold Project in Côte d'Ivoire. Over time, we have designed and built sustainability into everything we do.
