After four years of development and construction, on October 10th 2014 Achit Ikht LLC commissioned its 10ktpa copper cathode plant, the largest in Mongolia. This is Mongolia’s first modern hydrometallurgical plant built by private investors.
The Cathode copper plant is a fully automated hydrometallurgical plant that extracts cathode copper. It’s equipped with the most advanced Leaching – Solvent Extraction – Electrowinning /L-SX-EW/ equipment to process the off-balance mixed ore.
With the cathode copper plant commissioned, the artificial deposit of the dump No. 2, which had been previously considered as not-feasible and rejected by foreign, domestic and international experts, is back in use for producing an export-oriented product and making contribution to the Mongolian economics.
“Achit Ikht” LLC obtained a license No. ‘UN-000001’ to use artificial deposit under an amendment made to the Minerals Law in 2016. By doing so, the Company is considered as having the first license to run a Processing plant by using the artificial deposit.
In 2017, “Stability Certificate” was received by meeting requirements of the terms and conditions specified in the Investment Law.
