Russia and Iran set to develop world's largest zinc deposit

Sep 20, 2011 12:00 AM

Russia and Iran have agreed to jointly develop the world's largest zinc-lead deposit in central Iran.
"The sides agreed to implement a project on the construction of an ore mining and processing enterprise at the Mehdiabad zinc-lead deposit," a protocol signed at a meeting of the Russia-Iranian commission on trade and economic cooperation on September 11 said.

Russia's Rostekhnologii corporation and Iranian Bank Saderat Iran will run the Mehdiabad project with estimated investment of $ 1.2 bn. The deposit's total reserves are estimated at 394 tons of ore with an average grade of 4.2 % zinc and 1.6 % lead.
The implementation of the project could be hampered by the fact that the Iranian bank is subject to UN international sanctions against Tehran.
