2021 Full Year & Fourth Quarter Production(PresseBox) (Herisau, )
The 2021 calendar year produced an outstanding operational result in terms of ore mined, ore processed and, most importantly, Zinc and Gold produced. This was in spite of the fact that production was impacted in the fourth quarter by increasing constraints caused by the impending Chinese New Year, Winter Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games, including the reduction in the control of the supply of explosives.
Zinc metal in concentrate production for 2021 was up 28.1% on that achieved in 2020, whilst average zinc prices received in 2021 were up 40.5% on that received in 2021, with higher market prices and lower smelter treatment charges.
Mladen Ninkov, Chairman, commented:
“The 2021 production results are outstanding in their own right, made even more exceptional in light of the normal suspension of activities in the first quarter and the last quarter’s slowdown as the Chinese New Year and Winter Olympics approached and government restrictions began to be imposed. It is a credit to both the Western and Chinese operational staff that this result has been achieved.”
