Nyrstar committed to Hobart Smelter
 

23 November 2018

The CEO and senior management of Nyrstar have outlined plans to continue to invest in their Hobart Smelter in a briefing provided to me today.

Nyrstar have advised that they are committed to their Hobart operations, that the Hobart smelter is sustainable, and that they plan to continue to invest in the site.

This is a very good sign of their commitment to a long-term future for the Hobart smelter.

We’re aware globally that they are going through a capital restructure process, but their clear advice to us is that the Hobart smelter remains an important part of their business going forward.
