Partnerships

In October 2015, Mubadala acquired its stake in Trafigura’s flagship mining operation Minas de Aguas Teñidas (MATSA) as part of a joint venture to invest in the base metals mining sector. MATSA owns the Aguas Teñidas, Sotiel and Magdalena mines in southern Spain which produce copper, zinc and lead concentrates, with silver by-products. 

MATSA uses modern, mechanized underground mining methods to source ore from its three operations, which then feeds a centralized mineral processing plant at Aguas Teñidas. This plant has a feed capacity of 4.6 million tonnes per annum. 

Located north of the Iberian Pyrite Belt, MATSA is one of the only two mining operations in the Huelva Province and one of the three copper mines currently operating in Spain. The Magdalena mine commenced production in late 2015.
