KGHM Polska Miedź plans to build a new copper mine in the region of Bytom Odrzańskie and wants to use energy from renewable sources in it, said President Marcin Chludziński.
“After many years, we obtained new licenses in the area of Bytom Odrzańskie. We want to build a new copper mine there, which will be environmentally friendly through the use of energy from renewable sources and the use of an electric-powered machine, ”said Chludziński during the presentation of the assumptions of KGHM’s new strategy in Karpacz.
In addition, a potassium-magnesium salt mine used in ecological agriculture will be built in Puck, the president announced.
In June, KGHM announced that the first drillings on two exploration licenses would begin this year: Bytom Odrzański and Kulów Luboszyca. Before investment decisions are made, it is necessary to carefully estimate the resources and methods of their exploitation.
