Sandfire MATSA employs innovative techniques to find new ore deposits. Thanks to the success of the explorations, the useful life of its operations is estimated to be more than 20 years with the existing resources, clear evidence of the wealth of the soil in this region of Andalusia.

These results place the company as leaders in geological investigation in the region, and are the result of Sandfire MATSA’s commitment to investigation and the accumulated experience of the professionals in the workforce. 

At present they have more than 1,300 square kilometres of prospecting licences in the south of Spain (Andalusia and Extremadura) and over 1,100 km2 in Portugal, thanks to the continuous search for new horizons and to the signing of collaboration agreements with other organisations fro the development of investigation projects in the neighbouring country.
