Boliden Reports Production Disruptions
The company has not been able to maintain full production at the Aitik mine during the first quarter. In addition, hydraulic problems in one out of two primary mills in the concentrator plant have led to production disruptions. Production capacity has been reduced by a little more than 1 million metric tons (mt).
Increased absenteeism due to COVID-19 at Tara had a negative effect on production. In addition, a breakdown of the ore hoist occurred at the mine. The breakdown caused a halt in mining production, which was expected to last for a week.
