Improved prices and terms affected by strong USD

  • The effect of a stronger USD and improved smelting terms outweighed the impact of lower metal prices.
  • Several minor disruptions to Smelters’ processes resulted in lower feed compared to preceding quarter’s very strong production.
  • Increased mined production and improved recovery levels at Garpenberg.
  • Production levels fell at Aitik due to winter conditions and maintenance work.
  • Appeal regarding diesel tax at Aitik was rejected. Boliden continues to pursue appeals.
