We combine passion, safety and experience with proven and leading technologies to explore a range of brownfield mining districts to highly prospective terrains around the globe. We produce materials
essential for human progress

We’re focused on the resources the world needs to Grow

From the iron ore and metallurgical coal that create steel for construction, to the nickel powering the electric vehicle revolution, and the copper enabling the next generation of renewable infrastructure, our products are the building blocks of the modern world.

Zinc & Lead

Our zinc and lead business combines world-class assets with global marketing reach and expertise. We market zinc and lead not only from our own facilities, but also from third-party producers.


We are one of the world’s leading producers of cobalt – a metal in rising demand thanks to its use in batteries for electric vehicles and portable electronics.


We produce and market chrome ore, ferrochrome and vanadium.

We also market manganese ore and alloys.


According to the World Steel Association, steel is the most commonly used alloy in the world. Global steel consumption is forecast to grow by 1%-2% per annum over the next decade.


We produce some of the world’s purest nickel – and we are also one of the largest recyclers and processors of nickel-bearing materials, including batteries


We produce the full spectrum of diamonds in terms of qualities, sizes and colours. We have partnered with leading international organisations to ensure the integrity and reliability of the wider diamond industry too.


Our copper marketing business supplies a range of customers in the automotive, electronics and construction industries.


ADDC operates a portfolio of predominantly low cost, long life mines and a strong pipeline of Gold exploration projects.


We are a global leader in aluminium, with a large-scale, vertically-integrated business: bauxite mines and alumina refineries as well as smelters producing aluminium certified as responsible.


Data is one of our most valuable Resource

Every day our automated drills, trucks, shovels, conveyors, trains and ships produce huge amounts of valuable data. By combining this data with clever analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation, we are making our business safer and more productive.

We have also set up Centers of Excellence focused on analytics, automation, asset management, energy and climate change, orebody knowledge, underground mining, surface mining and processing. They bring together our foremost technical experts to work with our operations around the world. These smart mining teams help us make the right technical judgements and decisions to help us manage our major hazard risks and assure the safety of our assets and operational excellence.

We then use artificial intelligence to make the best use of our systems. We can automatically generate orebody models, organise equipment dispatch, and predict and control blasts. We have even optimised the speed and reduced queuing of our autonomous trucks – these small improvements have produced significant gains in productivity.


International Footprints

ADDC began as an exploration company and today our iron ore tenements remain key to maintaining mine life and sustaining product quality in our core iron ore business.

We recognise that early stage exploration can unlock significant value. Our world class exploration capability is driving future growth as we target global opportunities and commodities that support decarbonisation and electrification of the transport sector.
