:: Skorpion- Namibia's 'New Generation' Zinc Producer   (Mar.1, 2004)

Anglo American's Skorpion zinc mine and refinery in S-W Namibia was officially opened in September 2003. The project is innovative on many counts, not least in respect of the pioneering metallurgical process, the modified ZINCEX Process, being employed, which has made it possible to exploit an oxide orebody once regarded as being unviable due to extraction inefficiencies.

The mine is featured in the Jan-Feb. 2004 issue of African Mining (pps. 26-33).
