UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 19, 2018. Russian Copper Company’s Karabashmed produced 7% more crude copper in 2017 than one year previously, the company press service reports.

The plant produced around 120,000,000 kg of metal in the course of last year, setting a production record. This was possible due to large-scale facilities upgrades and production developments. In 2004-2017, Russian Copper Company invested some RUR 18bn in Karabashmed’s upgrades and in reducing the plant’s environmental impact.

‘The launch of the new automated crude copper-pouring line was also a positive factor for the company performance. The new equipment sped up ready made produce output considerably and cut down on metal loss. Additionally, our workers concentrated on their professional development and mastered new technologies and learned to operate new equipment successfully. Finally, stable supply of copper concentrate from Mikheyevsky Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise also helped to raise our output,’ says Karabashmed’s Director-General Andrei Khanzhin.
