Vinto - Empresa Metalúrgica Vinto S.A.

Bolivian state tin producer Empresa Metalúrgica Vinto (EMV) is engaged in the production of high grade metallic tin ingots. The company receives and processes concentrates from different mining cooperatives, big miners, small miners and other companies that produce or sell tin concentrates. The Bolivian government nationalized the Vinto antimony smelter - which was held by Sinchi Wayra, a subsidiary of Swiss group Glencore International  - in May 2010 after having expropriated EMV itself from Glencore in 2007. After its nationalization in 2010, four new furnaces with a combined capacity to process 1,000t/y of tin were installed at the smelter.  EMV is based in Oruro, Bolivia.
