The Vares ore processing facility is poised to incrementally enhance its capacity in the following months, with a target processing capacity of around 65,000 tons per month expected by the fourth quarter of 2024.

Paul Cronin, the general manager of Adriatic Metals BiH, expressed his satisfaction with the achievement, stating, “I am delighted to announce another significant milestone in the production of the first concentrate within the Vares Project.” He emphasized the utilization of advanced technology in designing and constructing the ore processing plant, with a strong commitment to adhering to the highest health and safety standards. Cronin extended his appreciation to the dedicated team for their diligent efforts.

This milestone signifies a notable success for Adriatic Metals BiH and holds significance for the local community in Vares and the wider state of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Vares project emerges as one of the most substantial post-war investments in the country, offering considerable economic and social benefits.

Throughout the project, Adriatic Metals BiH has prioritized local employment, collaboration with regional suppliers, engagement with authorities at all levels, and the adoption of state-of-the-art mining technology. This holistic approach not only drives economic growth but also ensures enduring advantages for the Vares community well beyond the mine’s operational lifespan.
