  • Project Overview
    Serbia Zijin Copper has four copper mines - JM, VK, NC and MS, and a smelter. The mines are located in the Eurasian metallogenic belt, with good metallogenic prospects and great potential for further discoveries. The project, once loss-making, was quickly turned around by Zijin in 2018 after its take-over. Serbia Zijin Copper is accelerating the technical upgrading and expansion of its 4 mines and the smelter. After completion, the company will produce 120,000 tonnes of mined copper and 180,000 tonnes of copper cathodes.
