Sonan’s purpose is to responsibly source the commodities that advance everyday life.

We do so through our strategy of sustainably growing total shareholder returns while maintaining a strong investment grade rating and acting as a responsible operator.

We fulfil our purpose and deliver on our strategy in a manner that reflects our values of safety, integrity, responsibility, openness, simplicity and entrepreneurialism.

Our values

Our values reflect our purpose, our priorities and the beliefs by which we conduct ourselves and carry out our business activities. They define what it means to work at Sonan, regardless of location or role.

They are the fundamental basis of our sustainability management system along with our Code of Conduct and our policies.


Working across our global network, we investigate where and how corruption can get a foothold in the mining sector. We focus on the process of obtaining a mining or exploration permit and ask who gets the right to mine? And under what conditions?

Targeting the start of the value chain means we can prevent corruption before ground is even broken.

Collaborating with governments, companies, civil society organisations and communities, we are building a fairer, clearer and cleaner process for obtaining a mining permit. By building a better system and a fairer process we can prevent corruption before ground is even broken.

Our Mission

We Aim to Build a Better World

Based on the idea of Pondering Today for a Better Future, Sonan Mining has always been standing at the strategic height to make development plan, establish strategic goals, push forward implementation of the plans with foresight and sagacity and achieve the targets. With innovation, team efforts and dedication, we follow all the contract spirit, respect diversified culture and customs to achieve win-win cooperation with our customers.

Looking into the future, in order to usher in a new journey towards the quality and international development, we will thoroughly implement the spirit and insist on the philosophy of “innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development". Led by the cooper industry, we simultaneously develop the multi-metal mining industry and deepen the integration of industry with investments, finance and trade. Meanwhile, we are making efforts to build a world-class company with global competitiveness to reward our employees, clients, partners and shareholders with better social, economic and environmental benefits.
