Utilizing knowledge supplied by Miningintelligence, MINING.COM takes a take a look at the 10 largest zinc producers in world when it comes to their 2019 output.
The Pink Canine mine in Alaska, operated by Canada’s Teck Sources, stored its “high canine” standing with zinc manufacturing of 552.Four kt in 2019, a 5% decline over the earlier calendar 12 months.
Vedanta’s Rampura Agucha underground mine stays the runner up with 358 kt of zinc produced, regardless of a pointy decline (18%) over the 438 kt produced in 2018.
The third and fourth spots are each occupied by Glencore operations in Australia: Mount Isa Zinc and McArthur River. The large Antamina mine in Peru dropped two spots to fifth after seeing its output plunge over 25% to 255.6 kt final 12 months.
