The Cerro San Pedro Mine is an open-pit gold and silver heap leach operation located in central Mexico, 20 kilometres northeast of the state capital of San Luis Potosí, approximately 400 kilometres north of Mexico City. The mine site is readily accessed from the city center, and an international airport is located a short distance away.

The mine is operated by New Gold’s wholly owned subsidiary, Minera San Xavier S.A. de C.V.

The Cerro San Pedro Mine concluded active mining operations in June 2016. In 2018, the mine transitioned from residual leaching to reclamation phase.

Site History

Cerro San Pedro started production in April 2007. It finished active mining late in the mid 2016 transitioning to residual leaching. In December 2018, Cerro San Pedro transitioned to reclamation.

Community Relations

New Gold is committed to working closely with communities to make a positive contribution to the community and regions in which we live and work. We recognize that our growth and success depend on the long-term economic, social and environmental sustainability of each of the communities in which we operate.

The Cerro San Pedro mine has been an economic bedrock in the community for decades. As the mine nears the end of its productive life, New Gold has invested heavily in equipping the community and mine workers with the tools to transition to a sustainable post-mining economy. Through these efforts there are several new businesses in the region operating financially independently of New Gold support.
