‘Erdmin’ LLC, the first copper cathode factory in Mongolia, manufactures more than 40 types of the copper wire for electrical use and began manufacturing extension leads with its copper wire which became a product of high demand in the local market.
A well-known company in many countries, ‘‘Alex Steward Assayers’’ of England confirmed the quality of its manufactured cathode copper. The cathode copper's quality is +99,999% pure meeting the grade “A” quality requirements of the London Metal Exchange. Twenty-three years ago, Mongolia’s Erdenet Mining Corporation (EMC), Asia’ leading producer of copper and molybdenum concentrate, with its then director-general Sh.Otgonbileg had performed an experiment to remove copper from mining waste and the event became the initial inception of establishing Erdmin LLC.
The aforementioned experiment to separate copper cathode from low-grade piles of "mining waste", using a weakened solution of sulfuric acid, turned out to be a success. Later in 1994, at the initiative of former General Director Sh.Otgonbileg of EMC, ‘’Erdenet Concern’’ LLC of Mongolia and ‘‘RMC’’ of the USA signed an agreement to build an experimental plant to manufacture pure copper cathode by using weakened solution of sulfur acid from low-grade ore piles of EMC. The official launching ceremony of the plant was held on February 13, 1997, establishing Erdenet Mineral Solution or Erdmin Co. Ltd.
One of the best 50 businesses of Mongolia, Erdmin is welcoming the year of its 20th anniversary with new products and new brand.
