The company was founded in 1911 by Moritz "Mauricio" Hochschild, one of South America's three tin barons. He had mining operations in several countries, primarily in Bolivia and Chile.[2]

The company was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2006.[3] It started operations at the San José mine in Argentina in June 2007,[4] at the Moris mine in Mexico in August 2007,[5] and at the Pallancata mine in southern Peru in September 2007.[6]

In 2012 local people in Chumbivilcas complained about the Ares mine and the government of Peru decided to suspend operations in Ares on a temporary basis so it could carry out an environmental audit.[7]


The Company has mines in the following locations:[8]

  • Peru – Arcata, Pallancata and Inmaculada mines
