We are a global producer of copper and silver with over 50 years of experience. Our objective is to join the group of large global copper producers with an output of about 700 thousand tons of copper annually while respecting business ethics, environmental protection and corporate social responsibility.
We own one of the largest copper deposits in the world and we have guaranteed continued production in Poland for the next 40 years. All our assets are located in three continents. We have development projects in Poland, Canada, Chile and Greenland. With the friendly acquisition of Quadra FNX in Canada, now renamed to KGHM International, we have become a global company with a brand recognisable all over the world.
One of our end products – cathodes is quoted on the exchanges in London and Shanghai. Our refined silver is certified by exchanges in London, Dubai and New York. Our offer includes gold, lead and rhenium. A company in the KGHM Ecoren Capital Group is the only European producer of rhenium from its own deposits and third largest rhenium producer in the world. In 2011 the company produced 6 tons of metallic rhenium. Our company is a leading Polish exporter. In 2011 exports amounted to almost PLN 12 billion and overall sales over PLN 15 billion, which gives the company a strong position in the WIG 20 index.
