Skorpion Zinc confirms refinery closure

Every effort being made to mitigate impacts

15 March 2019: Skorpion Zinc confirms the temporary closure of its Refinery for a period of five weeks from today, 15 March 2019. This follows the depletion of ore stocks as a result of an unprotected strike from 22 February until 06 March by employees of mining contractor, Basil Read. Every effort is being made to mitigate impacts on customers, on the business as a whole and on employees. Maintenance that was planned for later this year will be undertaken during this time period.

Skorpion Zinc is working to optimise the FY19/20 business plan so as to minimise the impact over the remainder of the life of the Pit112 project.
