Malaysia Smelting Corporation Berhad
The MSC Group is currently one of the world's leading integrated producers of tin metal and tin based products and a global leader in custom tin smelting since 1887. In 2010, the Group produced 45,381 tonnes of tin metal making it the second largest supplier of tin metal in the world.
With the Group's core expertise and solid foundation of over a century of smelting excellence to its credit, the Group's smelting facility in Butterworth operates one of the most cost efficient smelting plants in the world converting primary, secondary and often complex tin bearing ores into high purity tin metal for industrial application. The plant has a production capacity of approximately 35,000 tonnes of refined tin a year. MSC Straits refined tin brand which is registered at London Metal Exchange (LME) and Kuala Lumpur Tin Market (KLTM) is accepted worldwide and has purity ranging from the standard Grade A (99.85% Sn) to the premium grade electrolytic tin (99.99% Sn).
MSC has 100% equity interest in Rahman Hydraulic Tin Sdn. Bhd. (RHT), Malaysia's long established and largest operating open-pit eluvial tin mine. Extensive exploration works and improvements of milling/concentrator circuit and recovery operations have been undertaken since the takeover and today RHT is a sustainable and significant tin producer in Malaysia.
Consequent upon a decision made in 2009 to reposition the Group to focus on its original core business of tin, MSC would continue to pursue the appropriate strategic options to divest its remaining non-tin investments which include a 15.42% interest in Canadian listed nickel associate, Asian Mineral Resources Limited and a 30% interest in a polymetallic mine (producing copper, zinc, gold and silver in concentrates) in the Philippines.
