:: Vietnam To Build First Zinc Plant

Vietnam National Mineral Corp. (Vimico) will begin construction of a $13 million zinc plant in 2003. The plant, based in the northern province of Thai Nguyen, is the countrys first zinc plant and is expected to be operational in 2004. The government will provide all the funding required and equipment will be supplied by Chinese firms. The Thai Nguyen mining area is estimated to have several million tons of zinc ore reserves and the plant will have an annual production capacity of 10,000 metric tons of zinc ingots. Vietnam currently imports all the zinc required to meet domestic demand (15,000-20,000 tons a year).
