Business performances after ownership and management were taken over from bankruptcy by Uniprom-Metali

Following the acquisition of assets of bankrupted Rudnici Boksita Nikšić SC at the end of 2015, Uniprom-Metali Nikšić LLC rehabilitated neglected and devastated working units and equipment within mines and bauxite ore depos.

Full intensity rehabilitation works started at the open pits Zagrad and Đurakov Do II and in the underground mine Biočki Stan.

The work included rehabilitation of terrace slopes, construction of roads and channels in open pits, rehabilitation of underground rooms in underground mine, reconstruction of electrical and water supply installations, retrofitting the civil engineering infrastructure (administration building, electrical and mechanical workshops, ore crushing and screening facility, explosive storage facilities, spare parts warehouse, staff restaurants...).

Rehabilitation works were completed at the end of 2016 and ore production started.

In the course of 2016, total production of red bauxite ore in these three headings was 667.300 tons, whereas 390.600 tons of ore were produced in the first half of 2017.
