Metal mines – case study

Project description

Within the framework of this project CASE prepared a case study on KGHM Polska Miedź – one of the largest producers of copper and silver in the world. The analysis included production areas and operations of KGHM, corporate governance of the company, its relationship with government and parliament, as well as the SWOT analysis. A particular focus was put on ownership arrangements of KGHM, especially the history of its privatization. CASE examined how successful the privatization was, particularly taking into account the performance of KGHM after the whole process. The analysis has also shown what challenges were faced during the privatization and the lessons learned. The conclusions of the study can be helpful in privatization processes of other metal mines all over the world, in particular in case of the mining complex in Trepca in Kosovo which commissioned the case study.
