The Copper Smelter and Refinery have the function of further processing of ore, i.e., the concentrate delivered by RBB and RBM, so that all ore resources, after the flotation process, are transported to the TIR facilities, where the additional processes lead to the final product.
Since 2015, the Smelter and Refinery have the the most modern facilities for smelting the copper concentrate and producing the sulfuric acid. The facilities are designed to achieve maximum safe working and production conditions, thus their effect is primarily ecological. At the same time, they represent significant technological and economic improvements, which makes the costs of processing the copper concentrate competitive and comparable to other metallurgical facilities in the world.
The facilities have the following characteristics:
The number of employees in the Smelter and Refinery is 1,197.
The Copper Smelter and Refinery Bor consists of:
