We are a global leader in zinc; the world’s leading zinc smelting company and a top five* zinc mining company.
We produce zinc in concentrate from our mining operations and we produce special high grade (SHG), zinc galvanizing alloys, and zinc die casting alloys as an outcome of our zinc smelting process.
We convert the raw material into zinc metal for use in numerous different end use applications. Zinc provides excellent corrosion resistance to iron and steel. It is also a relatively hard metal with a low melting point, making it suitable for die casting, but still soft enough to be formed, rolled, or extruded.
You’ll find zinc in everything from construction and infrastructure to transport and industrial machinery, from communications to electronics, and from consumer products to human health.
