Production at the plant began on 24 December 1953, with the casting of the first copper from ore from the so-called Old Copper Zone. On 19 March 1959 the Legnica Metallurgical Plant was transformed into the Legnica Copper Smelter and Refinery, with an annual production capacity at the time of 12.5 thousand tonnes of electrolytic copper.
Corporation (YCC), in November 2006, and the smelter began producing copper at the end of 2008 • The IsaSmeltsmelter was initially designed to produce 150 kt/a of blister copper, but has since been expanded to reach 250 kt/a of blister copper (which represents a smelting capacity of 750 kt/a of feed)

Refined copper production was 518,000 tonnes in June, versus 484,000 tonnes in May, which was the lowest output since February, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed on Tuesday. Chen Dixi, an analyst at Jinrui Futures, said smelters had turned more optimistic on copper consumption since the middle of last month.
Their production capacity amounts to 540 thousand tonnes of electrolytic copper and 1200 tonnes of silver a year. These values place KGHM's smelting potential among the largest producers in the world. The production in the KGHM smelters mainly relies on the company's own resources and copper ore concentrates produced on-site. KGHM's processing ...
At that time production capacity was 160 thousand tonnes of electrolytic copper annually. In 1974, in Żukowice, near Głogów, the second part of the smelter was opened - Głogów II (capacity of 159 thousand tonnes/year).

In 2012, Głogów and Legnica smelters of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. obtained permits for trading CO2 emissions. The calculation and verification of the volume of generated CO2 for the purpose of the Company's participation in the system was carried out a year before.
Copper is an essential component in many of the products that make up the world around us. Ductility, malleability, and superior conductivity of heat and electricity, are just a few of the properties that make this unique metal so useful across a broad range of applications.

Production at the Głogów Copper Smelter is based on one-stage smelting technology in a flash furnace, where – directly from dry concentrate – blister copper is produced. This technology consists of three phases: concentrate roasting, matt copper smelting and conversion, combined into one process.
Recovery rates in the mid-1990s were 88–90% for copper and 83–88% for silver, but have improved since. Optimising the concentrator capacity and transport to the HM Glogów smelter remain KGHM priorities, as does one station flash smelting. PRODUCTION. Copper production increased from 400,000t/y in the early 1990s to almost 500,000t in 2001.
