About BNC

Bindura Nickel Corporation operates a mine and owns a smelter and refinery complex, which are both currently not operational, in Bindura, Zimbabwe. It was established in 1966 by Anglo-American Corporation and was listed on the ZSE in 1971. The Company is engaged in the mining and extraction of nickel and its by-products (copper and cobalt).
