Four development projects in copper industry were inaugurated in Kerman Province on Thursday by President Hassan Rouhani.
A total of 2.21 trillion rials ($13.64 million) have been invested in these projects, which are said to have created more than 200 jobs, IRIB News reported. 
Located in the southern province's Shahr-e Babak County, the new projects belong to development of Khatunabad Copper Refinery Plant, including the expansion of its copper anode smelting plant, a new copper concentrate storage facility, a sulfuric acid plant and an oxygen plant.
The expansion of the copper anode smelting plant has entailed technology improvement and increased copper anode production by 50%, from 80,000 tons to 120,000 tons per year.
