At Risdon near Hobart, zinc mineral concentrates are used to produce zinc metal at the Pasminco Hobart Smelter. For further information on production, employment and capital expenditure, see Pasminco Hobart Smelter on this web site (under Statistics - Tasmania).

A by-product of the production of zinc at Risdon is sulphuric acid, which is used on site to make farm fertilisers. For further information on production and employment numbers, see Impact Fertilisers Pty Ltd on this web site (under Statistics - Tasmania).
