What we do
Major projects

Zijin has mining projects in 17 provincial-level regions in China and 15 other countries across the globe.


We operate several flagship copper mines, including the Čukaru Peki Copper-Gold Mine and the Bor Copper Mine in Serbia; the Kamoa Copper Mine and the Kolwezi Copper-Cobalt Mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo; the Julong Copper Mine in Tibet, the Zijinshan Copper Mine in Fujian, the Duobaoshan Copper Mine in Heilongjiang, and the Ashele Copper Mine in Xinjiang, China.


Our key gold assets include Rosebel Gold Mines in Suriname, the Buriticá Gold Mine in Colombia, the Porgera Gold Mine in Papua New Guinea, Norton Gold Fields in Australia, and mines operated by Longnan Zijin and Shanxi Zijin in China.


To contribute to the global push for a green, low-carbon transition, we are developing lithium assets such as the Lakkor Tso Lithium Project in Tibet, China; the Xiangyuan Hard-Rock Lithium-containing Polymetallic Mine in Hunan, China; and the Tres Quebradas Salar in Argentina. We also lead the development of the northeast of the world-class Manono Lithium Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In the long run, we plan to produce more than 120,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent per annum, which will lay a solid foundation for us to become one of the world’s major lithium producers.


We will accelerate the construction and development of the Jinzhai Molybdenum Mine in Anhui, China, the world’s largest molybdenum mine by reserves.

The low-carbon transition

By expanding into battery metals, clean energy and advanced materials, Zijin Mining helps drive the low-carbon transition. We now own the 3Q lithium project in Argentina, the Lakkor Tso lithium project in Tibet, and the Xiang Yuan hard-rock lithium mine in Daoxian county, Hunan Province, China. Owning more than 12 million tonnes of LCE resources, we are among the top 10 global lithium companies by resources. In the long run, we plan to produce over 120,000 tonnes of LCE per annum, which will lay a solid foundation for us to become a major lithium producer in the world.
