ScoZinc Mine Overview

The ScoZinc zinc-lead mine last operated from mid 2007 through early 2009 before it was shut down following a dramatic decline in zinc and lead prices during the 2008-2009 financial collapse. During its operation, ScoZinc Mine demonstrated the attractiveness of mining the zinc-lead mineralization in an open pit, confirming the potential for mining the other mineral deposits located adjacent to the Main open pit area.
