Zhehai (Huize) zinc smelter

Report summary

Zhehai (Huize) zinc smelter shared the site with a 25kt/a conventional sinter-blast furnace lead smelter. The flowsheet was complex with many cross-connections. Due to the age and location of the Zhehai (Huize) smelter it was closed in 2011 and replaced by a new 100kt/a zinc - 60kt/a lead smelter situated at Mawu (also near Huize). 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.
