Lepanto is looking to develop the Far Southeast Project through a partnership with Gold Fields Limited of South Africa, one of the biggest gold miners in the world, with whom Lepanto executed an Option and Shareholders' Agreement in September 2010.

Lepanto has been a publicly-listed company since 1947. Its shares are traded on the Philippine Stock Exchange under the symbols LC and LCB and are highly liquid.

Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company is committed to achieving its business objectives with utmost care for the environment and concern for the welfare, safety and health of its employees and host communities.

"I am confident that the contribution of large scale mining to the GDP will steadily increase in the near future. Currently, mining contributes a meager 1.4% of the GDP of the country. With the opening up of the industry and the full support of the government, we expect to realize the full potential of the industry as an engine of growth not only in the host communities but for the entire nation."

2013 turned out to be a more difficult year than the previous year. Gold continuously fell from an average of $1,671/oz. in January to $1,221/oz. in December. Silver dropped from a January average of $31.11/oz. to $19.60/oz. Globally, mines struggled to adjust their operations in the light of the falling prices. In addition, the anticipated government rationalization of the mining industry, in particular the revision of the revenue-sharing scheme, did not materialize with the moratorium on the processing of new mineral applications remaining effectively in force for the second year.
