Company News: Sterlite Industries
Updated: 28 Mar 2011

Sterlite is the leading copper producer in India. In 2007-08, we produced 339,294 tonnes of copper. Our highest ever production. The copper business comprises smelting and processing of copper and production of its byproducts. Our operations include a smelter, refinery, phosphoric acid plant, sulphuric acid plant and copper rod plant at Tuticorin in the state of Tamil Nadu in southern India; and a refinery and two copper rod plants at Silvassa in the Union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli in western India.

In addition, we own the Mt. Lyell copper mine at Tasmania in Australia, which produces a clean concentrate that is valuable in the smelting process, to meet around 8% of our copper concentrate requirements at Sterlite. The Tuticorin smelter was in lowest cost quartile among all copper smelting operations in the world; and the refineries at Tuticorin and Silvassa were globally ranked seventh-lowest and eighth-lowest in production costs.
