Report summary

Zinc and lead producers in Inner Mongolia are focused on reducing operating costs as tight margins, low prices, rising treatment charges and falling ore grades challenge the economics of these assets. The main focus for cost reduction is to maximise output from existing capacity. These productivity gains, along with greenfield and brownfield expansions, will increase mine output and ensure Inner Mongolia remains the largest lead and zinc concentrate producer in China.
