The company sell Nyrstar Campo Morado mine
The Belgium company Nyrstar plans to sell its zinc and copper mine at Campo Morado. The decision is justified by the fact that the mine is idle since December last year. The purchaser is a company Telson Resources, Canada. The cost of the transaction has reached 20 million USD in cash. In addition specified a certain amount. Its size will be determined by the price of zinc on the global market in the next few years.
By the way, not the only Campo Morado mine, replaced the master. At the beginning of last year, Nyrstar sent to auction almost all of the mining assets located in South and North America. The purpose of such action was the desire to focus on the development of refined zinc, lead. The company also planned to increase profitability in terms of reduced cost of raw materials. The transfer of rights to the Campo Morado — the penultimate deal of the company held in Latin America. Now owned by Nyrstar was only located in Mexico, the Pucarrajo mine.
Despite active sale, to get rid of two canadian and one American mines, the company failed. Its representatives announced the intention to resume production of raw materials.
