Anguran Lead and Zinc Complex
Operations of Anguran Lead and Zinc Mineral Complex are in three sections of
open mine, underground mine (sulfur) and travertine construction stone.
Extraction in the open mine includes waste and mineral extraction that is
accomplished by the contractor and the extracted minerals would be delivered
by the employer (Iran Minerals Production and Supply Company – IMPASCO) in
the course of a special process to different factories for processing and
producing ingots. The underground sector (sulfur) has been established in
order to gain speedy access to the mineral substances in the lower parts of
the mineral reserves. About 4200 meters different excavations had previously
been constructed by the employer but continuation of the activity is
conditioned on the completion of the preparations. Also, excavation of the
mineral substance through tender has been ceded to the eligible contractor.
The extracted mineral substance will be delivered to the employer in order
to be handed over to the applicants through auction or the stock market.
The second mineral substance of Anguran Complex is travertine construc- tion
stone with a geological reserve of about 30 million tons and proved re-
serve of over 14 million tons. The opera- tion license has been maintained
for the14 million tons, and it is expected that 25 thousand tons will be
annually extracted. The extraction and sale of the travertine construction
stone is done by the contrac- tor and the employer’s share will be paid by
the contractor after the sale.
Anguran lead and zinc soil is exclusively supplied to the domestic
factories and considering the created capacities and local needs there is
no possibility for export but as for travertine, there is; which, regards to
the type of the contract sale and export of such product are carried out by
