Concentrates

Teck is a diversified mining and metals company. We produce concentrates from mined ore, and recover a variety of base metal products.

Concentrate production is a process whereby the main metallic compounds of the mine’s ore are separated and 'concentrated'. This concentrated material is then sold to smelters for further refining.

The marketing of base metal concentrates is a key element of Teck's business. Our concentrate sales span the globe.

Our experienced concentrate sales team markets over 1.1 million dry metric tonnes of zinc concentrates, over 150,000 dry metric tonnes of lead concentrates, over 700,000 dry metric tonnes of copper concentrates, and approximately 5 million pounds of low-copper, clean quality molybdenum concentrates per year.
