Report summary

Los Frailes mine in Aznalc├│llar located 36km north west of Seville is expected to resume operations by around 2020. In 1998 there was a serious failure of the tailings dam this coupled with low prevailing zinc prices and Boliden's unwillingness to invest in the pushback for the Pit 3 shell led to the mine's closure in 2001. On 20 February 2015 the operational rights were awarded to a consortium of Grupo Mexico and Minorbis. They are planning on operating an underground mine with a maximum mill capacity of approximately 2.7Mt/a.
