A giant copper mine in Kerman Province is expected to boost Iran’s annual copper concentrate output by 130,000 tons once it becomes operational in the next Iranian year (March 2021-22), according to managing director of the National Iranian Copper Industries Company (NICICO).
“The construction operations of Der Alo Copper Mine are nearly complete and a big share of the equipment has been installed,” Ardeshir Sa’d-Mohammadi was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
He noted that over 8.8 trillion rials ($38 million) plus €63 million have so far been injected into the project.
“The mine, with a capacity of extracting 7 million tons of copper sulfide per annum, is projected to begin operation in the first half of the next [fiscal] year [March 21-Sept. 22],” he added.
