RTB. – The “Red” metal produced in the Mining and Smelting Basin provides customers with superior quality all these years, who pay premiums for copper from Bor, ie they do not buy it on stock exchange market for a flet price, but fo pay more for it. It is chemically pure, has a specific crystalline structure and does not contain any additives that cause brittleness, which allows it to be drawn to the finest diameters. Namely, from boron copper can be drawn a wire with a thickness of a hair, and this is due the fact that it does not have bismuth in the traces. That’s why copper produced in the Mining and Smelting Basin Bor is highly appreciated on the domestic and foreign markets, so customers also pay through the LME price to get it.
