:: First Skorpion Zinc Metal Due in October

Construction of the R3 billion Skorpion zinc mine and refinery in southern Namibia is on schedule, and Anglo Base Metals expects the project to be completed at about 6% below budget. Skorpion will use the patented 'Modified Zincex Process' supplied by Spain's Tecnias Reunidas, and will be the largest single-stream zinc solvent extraction plant build so far. Mechanical installation is due to be completed by July, with hot commissioning and the first production of zinc metal ingot scheduled for September.
