What differentiates us
Bozshakol and Aktogay are ramping up production and this will deliver over 50% annual growth in Group copper output from 2015-2018. This is the highest growth rate of any pure-play listed copper miner.
The Group’s net cash cost in 2016 of 59 USc/lb was amongst the lowest of any pure-play listed copper miner.
Bozshakol and Aktogay are large scale open pit mines and will process 25 Mt of ore through each of their main sulphide concentrators per year when fully ramped up.
Our scale helps us to drive down the costs of production.
Our operations in Kazakhstan benefit from highly competitive power tariffs, enabling us to operate large scale facilities at low cost.
Our mines are connected to the existing infrastructure of the national rail network which enables us to efficiently deliver our products to customers.
The copper concentrate produced at Bozshakol and Aktogay is very low in arsenic and other pollutants.
It is also high in sulphur content, which is attractive for Chinese smelters.
