Tax on ores to be analysed

One of the topics of the talks conducted by Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz with the company’s corporate bodies was the tax on ores, which KGHM pays. It’s a good idea that experts should give their attention to the structure of the tax currently in force – the prime minister said.

The head of the government ruled out lowering the ore tax to the level of the hydrocarbon tax, which comes into force next year. She added that the most important thing is supporting investment in new deposits.

Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz added that thanks to the ore tax, the state budget received PLN 5 billion since 2012.

KGHM is the flywheel of our economy

KGHM is the element of the flywheel or our economy - Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz in Głogów. The Copper Mining and Steelworks Conglomerate Plant (KGHM) was established in 1961, and deals with extraction and processing of precious natural resources. What constitutes its heart is the biggest European copper ore deposit located in the south-west Poland. 

Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz pointed out that today the Polish flag flutters over KGHM assets on three continents – Europe, North and South America. Visiting KGHM, Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz pointed out that it is a very important employer for the region. In total, it employs 34 thousand people.
