The mine exploits a volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit and has produced 124.22Mt grading 6.18 % Zn, 2.31% Cu, 0. 22% Pb and 87 g/t Ag.
Mining operations began in 1966, as an open pit mine and eventually evolved into an underground mine.

The mine operates at least 3000 m deep making it the deepest base metal mine in the world.
