The Shanli smelter was founded in 1988 with an initial zinc smelting capacity of 40kt/a. In 2006, the smelter built a new 60kt/a capacity to raise the total smelting capacity to 100kt/a slab zinc. However, the commissioning of this expansion project was delayed until 2016 due to a series of issues.
