As we closely monitor the ongoing developments and uncertainty regarding COVID-19, the health and safety of Capstone’s employees and the communities in which we operate is our principle focus, as well as focusing on the health and long-term sustainability of our copper business. For a detailed outline of how we've responded to COVID-19 to date, refer to our Sustainability Summary published on October 28, 2020.

Community Support

During March to May 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, each of our sites helped their local communities as follows:

  • Pinto Valley donated N95 masks to medical and public sector workers. With the rapid recovery of copper prices in July, they increased their contribution to the United Fund of Globe-Miami to $100,000, in response to other local business temporarily suspending their donations due to COVID-19 business impacts. In November, Pinto Valley will be running an employee contribution and company match donation for the United Fund. 
  • Cozamin donated 50,000 pesos to the Ministry of Finance to purchase supplies from companies based in Zacatecas, 10 hospital beds to the state government, as well as send 1,250 protective masks to the Minister of Public Security and 250 masks to the State Attorney General’s Office to help protect workers.
  • Santo Domingo donated food boxes to local communities and families.
  • The corporate office employees donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and Capstone matched the employee total.
