At the center of every thriving mining company is the ability to successfully locate and extract new mineral deposits. After more than 100 years in the industry, no one knows this better than Mexico-based Industrias Peñoles S.A.B. de C.V.

“In the mining business, finding the richest mines, and exploiting them correctly, is of the utmost importance,” explains Mario Antonio González Negrete, CIO of Peñoles.

To maximize exploration efforts and maintain leadership, Peñoles relies on HP, its partner for more than 25 years. Using HP technology, Peñoles remains the largest producer of silver and among the largest producers of gold, lead and zinc worldwide.

“The specific HP technology used in the areas of exploration and mine design is a very important factor for us. It allows our team to improve the quality of our information and make better decisions based on this information,” says González Negrete.

Peñoles’ employees use the latest technology from HP, including HP Designjet large-format multifunction printers, to quickly access the precise information needed to make vital decisions.

“The faster printing process of the HP Designjet T1100 Multifunction Printer allows us to quickly determine whether or not to continue exploration. This information needs to be generated in a matter of minutes because having machines switched off costs us money,” explains Peñoles geologist Leopoldo Núñez.


Information can also be quickly sent between Peñoles’ multiple locations using HP technology. “We often use very old maps, and the HP Designjet T1100 allows us to scan documents and send them via email to other mines. This helps us lower both time and costs,” says Graciela Hernández, topographical engineer and real estate manager at Peñoles.

The ability to quickly communicate information isn’t the only aspect of HP technology that Peñoles relies on for successful exploration. To make the best decisions for the business, Peñoles’ employees rely on consistent, high-quality output.

“We are able to find new areas to build in that increase the life of the mine, thanks to the quality of maps printed on the HP Designjet T1100 Multifunction Printer,” explains Núñez. The HP Designjet T1100 offers accurate line quality and precise colors necessary for Peñoles’ production of maps, plans and images.


Hernández adds, “It is important for us to have the equipment that helps us accurately put our ideas down on paper. HP technology helps us do this, which allows us to make greater advances in our projects.”

Fundamental support lowers costs

Quickly and easily communicating accurate information using HP technology is a cornerstone of Peñoles’ business, and these abilities lead to even broader benefits for the company.

“Every HP computer and printer that we have in Peñoles helps to reduce costs and increase the productivity of both the personnel and the company,” says Marco Julio Ramos, manager of resource administration.

González Negrete adds, “The management, processing and analysis of information is essential when it comes to making quick, precise business decisions. HP technology is fundamental to optimizing this process and, as a result, lowering costs for the business.”
