Anglo Asian Mining has signed a contract to sell copper concentrate from its Gedabek mine in western Azerbaijan to commodities giant Glencore International.
The AIM listed gold producer will sell 2,500 wet metric tonnes (WMT) and 550 dry metric tonnes of copper concentrate when available from the gold, copper and silver mine.
Glencore will purchase 250 WMT per month of copper concentrate under the agreement, which is due to commence before the end of 2012. There is also an option for Anglo Asian Mining to halt the sale of copper concentrate once 1,500 WMT has been passed to Glencore.

From here we hope to arrange further sales contracts for our copper concentrate stockpiles, which now total 2,900 WMT, and we also look forward to reporting our FY 2012 gold and copper production figures in the New Year, where we are on track to produce 49-51,000 ounces of gold and 600 tonnes of copper."
