This paper describes some of the parameters and technologies used at the Mexicana de Cobre smelter, and discusses the principal design parameters and new technologies that are being implemented in a smelter-expansion project designed to increase the production capacity of anode copper from 180 to 300 kt/year (200 to 330,000 stpy). In addition, some parallel projects under construction in the smelter plant are described.
