Trevali Mining Corp. now one of the largest zinc producers in the world

The owner of a northeastern New Brunswick mine has just become one of the largest zinc producers in the world.

Vancouver-based Trevali Mining Corporation recently completed a deal with Glencore that resulted in it acquiring the majority of stakes in two mines in Africa.

The aquisitions put Trevali among the top 10 zinc producers in the world and will allow the company to double its annual zinc output to approximately 410-million pounds.

Trevali is now the first pure zinc company with operations in both North and South America, as well as Africa.
