Comments on other economic factors

  • THE PRODUCTS ARE SHIPPED THROUGH PORT AT PRAHOVO (ON THE DANUBE RIVER), RTB BOR HAS ITS OWN CARGO FLEET. HIGH ARSENIC ORE REQUIRES THAT SOME CONCENTRATE BE EXPORTED FOR SMELTING. THE LARGER PORTION IS SMELTED AND REFINED AT BOR.
  • UNIT PRODUCTION COST AND INVESTMENT FOR UNDERGROUND AND SURFACE DATA SETS ARE COMBINED AND LISTED IN THE UNDERGROUND DATA SET. SURFACE OPERATIONS WERE SCHEDULED TO STOP IN 1990. UNDERGROUND SHOULD CONTINUE, BUT OVERALL PRODUCTION WILL DECREASE SIGNIFICANTLY FROM 15,000 METRIC TONS PER DAY.
