Press Statement – Roaster Chanderiya

In lieu of the Announcement Under Regulation 30 (LODR) – Roaster Shutdown, the company sent a communication to the stock exchange today. Below is the media statement:

We would like to inform that the planned shutdown taken at one of the roasters at Chanderiya Lead Zinc Smelter, has been extended in view of the need to repair and overhaul many major structural components of the roaster to avoid any operational risk in the future. This will result in potential loss of production of about 25KT of Zinc. We expect the roaster to come back to operation by mid of October 2021. We will however ensure balanced approach of supply to all our customer in a manner that will have no impact on their operations.
