Plants retrospective

Published on April 2013

Contrary to what has been announced by Eramet, with the present start of production of the North Plant, SMSP emphasizes and privileges the local processing, since the Koniambo mining resource permits. However, when the ore is too poor to be processed locally, or when the mines are too isolated and too small, and when the high ore grade has already been removed and collected, then SMSP favors the use of vertical integration through offshore partnerships, to process that low grade ore, rather than exporting it at a raw and unprocessed state, like other operators have been doing.
