Brief company profile

Since its IPO in 2008, Ma’aden and its partners have led investment of over US$45 billion in large-scale, long-life, cost competitive assets to deliver quality products to the global market. Ma’aden has a broad commodity focus spanning gold, phosphate, aluminum, copper, magnesia, low-grade bauxite and industrial minerals, and is continually assessing opportunities in new commodities that demonstrate strong long-term fundamentals and opportunities for growth.

In phosphate, Ma’aden has an ambitious vision to be among the global top phosphate players, and its operations revolve around two joint ventures: Ma’aden Phosphate Company (MPC), with 3m ton/year capacity of DAP and MAP; and the soon-to-be-commissioned Ma’aden Wa’ad Al Shamal Phosphate Company (MWSPC), with 3m ton/year capacity of DAP and MAP, in addition to more than 440,000 tons/year of other phosphate derivatives.

Ma’aden Aluminium is the largest and most efficient vertically integrated aluminum complex in the world. The project uses Saudi bauxite to efficiently and reliably produce aluminum ingots, billets, T-bars, automotive and can sheet for domestic and international markets as well as to facilitate the development of domestic downstream industries. In its precious and base metals business, Ma’aden operates six gold mines and one copper mine. Focusing on exploration in the Arabian basin, Ma’aden is targeting near-term production of 500,000 ounces/year.
