Our Business

Hudbay is a copper-focused company, though we benefit from our increasing exposure to gold and welcome the opportunities created by the other metals we mine. Our company was founded in northern Manitoba in 1927, and in the intervening years has demonstrated an exceptional ability for creating value across every stage of the mining lifecycle. We have assets throughout the Americas and are recognized as a dependable operator of long-life, low-cost mines everywhere we operate.

CEO Message

In 2020, like the rest of the world, Hudbay was confronted by the challenge of COVID-19. Thanks to the dedication of the many people across our organization, we were able to meet that challenge successfully and protect the well-being of our employees and communities while continuing our operations. Beyond COVID-19, 2020 was a year defined by delivery, in which we met our guidance, delivered on our commitments, made progress on key projects, and continued to invest in our organization and culture.

2020 was a year of investment – of financial resources, effort, time and planning. Combined with growing gold revenue and demand for copper, Hudbay is in a solid position as we move forward into the next decade.
