Gamsberg producing by mid-year – Vedanta

The Gamsberg zinc project in South Africa’s Northern Cape is on track with production expected by the middle of this year, the London-listed, India-rooted Vedanta Resources said on Wednesday, when it reported higher revenue and profits and lifted its dividend yield for the year to 6%. Current expansion will take Vedanta to more than 1.5-million tonnes a year of zinc production, with Zinc India ramping up to 1.2-million tonnes and Gamsberg to 250 000 t in the near-term.
