Reception and handling

The deliveries of copper concentrate, which arrive by boat at the outer harbour of the Port of Huelva, are transported by truck to the Plant, where they are then stored separately according to grade. In order to achieve a balanced mix for treatment in the flash furnace different qualities are combined together with a flux, silica, to facilitate the reaction.

The preparation of the mixture is performed in silos. The concentrate is transferred from the covered storage areas to the silos via transporter belts.
