Mawu (Huize) zinc smelter

Report summary

Due to its age and location, the Zhehai (Huize) smelter was closed in 2011, and its production was replaced by this new 100kt/a zinc (operationally 133kt/a)-60kt/a lead smelter situated at Mawu (near Huize). Mawu was planned to start production during 2012, however commissioning actually began in late 2013. Wood Mackenzie’s asset reports are built from the bottom up, incorporating a number of granular data metrics to ultimately produce our industry standard cash operating costs. This report contains a detailed asset note giving you a holistic view of the asset, including an operational overview through to a timeline of events from inception to now. This qualitative analysis is supplemented by the associated Excel download which enables interrogation of a whole series of cost and production metrics over the life of the asset.
