To qualify as a small site, the site must produce, or treat by or on its account, less than 10’000 tons of contained metal, including secondary metal, per year. This includes the primary metal produced by the site as well as any by-product(s).
Annual fees are reviewed regularly by the Copper Mark. Discounts may apply.
