Boliden Tara Mines


New Boliden Tara Mines is Europe's largest zinc mine
Tara in Ireland is Europe's largest zinc mine and also one of the largest in a global comparison. Since mining began in 1977, more than 85 million tonnes of ore have been extracted. Boliden acquired the mine in 2004.

Thanks to exploration and acquisitions, the mineral reserve and mineral resources have grown continuously. In recent years, Tara has focused on improving its cost position through productivity enhancing investments and savings measures. Around 2.6 million tonnes of ore are mined annually for the production of zinc and lead concentrates.
