Horsehead Holding Corp. issued an update on operations at its Mooresboro, North Carolina zinc production facility. The company reported that the facility produced over 2,900 tons of zinc metal in June, 2014, a rate of approximately 23% of design capacity which was better than internal projections for the first month of an expected six month ramp up. Zinc feedstock produced from the Company's recycling operations in excess of the requirement for the Mooresboro plant were sold as either zinc calcine or waelz oxide.

The company believes this work can be accomplished within approximately two to three weeks and for minimal cost. The company also reported that the construction of the co-product recovery circuit designed to recover lead and silver is mechanically complete, commissioning has started and is expected to occur for the next few weeks before metal concentrate production begins.
