Operations

Operations Overview

Ero Copper Corp’s copper mining and development operations are located in north-eastern Brazil within the established mining states of Bahia and Pará. The producing operations of the MCSA Mining Complex, located in Bahia State, are the current focus of the Company. Ero’s business strategy is centered upon aggressively increasing the high-grade mineral reserves, extending mine life and maximizing mill throughput of the operations, leveraging the excess capacity of the installed infrastructure. The fully integrated operations of the MCSA Mining Complex include underground and open pit mining activities, a conventional three-stage crush and flotation mill and supporting infrastructure required to produce a high-grade, clean concentrate grading 35% copper. Ero’s development project, Boa Esperanҫa, located in Pará State, offers incremental low-cost production growth to the Company. Ero is targeting first production from Boa Esperanҫa in 2022.
