Compliance

Ensuring all compliances are met

Ensuring that Nyrstar is fully compliant with all regulations.

The site’s main products are SHG zinc, zinc die-casting alloys and zinc galvanizing alloys, which are exported predominantly to Asia and, in particular, to China.

Hobart sources the majority of its concentrate requirements from within Australia, predominantly from the Zinifex Century and Rosebery mines. Hobart is also focused on sourcing and processing higher
percentages of secondary zinc oxides, to increase flexibility of feed to the site.

Hobart’s by-products include sulphuric acid, cadmium and copper
sulphate, as well as two leach by-products that are typically processed by the Port Pirie smelter, paragoethite and a lead sulphate leach concentrate.
