Nevsun Resources has completed construction of the new zinc concentrator at its Bisha operations in Eritrea and began commissioning the plant in early June. The company has previously produced copper concentrates from the Bisha deposit’s copper-enriched supergene zone, which overlies a primary sulphide zone containing both zinc and copper. The new zinc flotation plant adds to existing copper flotation, and Nevsun now expects to produce both zinc and copper concentrates throughout Bisha’s currently planned nine-year mine life.
