Committed to business development in Zacatecas

About the Peñasquito Local Suppliers program

In 2020, Minera Peñasquito S.A. de C.V., subsidiary of Newmont Corporation and in charge of the operation of the Peñasquito mine in Mexico, created the “Local Content Superintendency” within its Supply Chain department. The Superintendency was designed to strengthen and optimize its local purchases and contracts with local micro, small and medium size enterprises (local MSMES) located in the Zacatecas state, where Peñasquito operates, with special emphasis in 25 communities located in the immediate area of operations.

The local content business platform is an initiative lead by the Local Content Superintendency of Peñasquito Supply Chain, to facilitate access to commercial information and training for companies in Zacatecas that may be interested in becoming suppliers to Minera Peñasquito.

By using this website, local entrepreneurs in Zacatecas State can better understand how Peñasquito does business whilst accessing information on business opportunities in a friendly way.
