Our Partnership with Nyrstar

Nyrstar is a global multi-metals business, with operations located in Europe, the United States of America and Australia employing over 4,000 people. In July 2019, Nyrstar’s operating business became majority owned by Trafigura, one of the world’s leading independent commodity trading companies.

Nyrstar Australia is a national multi-metals processing and manufacturing business, operating in Port Pirie and Hobart for over 100 years to produce lead, silver, zinc, and many other materials – including critical minerals – that are essential for the manufacture of products used by everyone, every day.

Today Nyrstar Australia employs over 1,300 people across processing plants in Port Pirie and Hobart that operate as two interlinked sites and play a critical role in increasing the value of the metals and minerals obtained from resources sourced from across Australia and around the world.
