Laguna Gold was founded as an exploration company focused on precious and base metals in Chile. It subsequently acquired a portfolio of six prospective epithermal gold properties over five sites in Chile.


In November 2016, Laguna Gold acquired the polymetallic producing El Toqui mine from Nyrstar, transforming the company into a medium-sized exploration and producing mining company.


El Toqui is an operating mine producing zinc, lead, gold and silver. It has been operating for more than 33 years and has a track record of replacing resources and reserves. The company is focused on maximising the long-term return from the El Toqui mining operations.
