Lane Xang Minerals Limited | Vientiane is a reputable brand that operates the Sepon Gold and Copper Operation in Vilabouly District, Savannakhet Province. With a rich history dating back to 1992, Sepon has become a leading producer of copper cathode and gold doré in Laos. Since its inception, Sepon has produced over 1.

5 million ounces of gold doré and 1. 1 million tonnes of copper cathode. In 2021 alone, the company produced over 5,341 tonnes of copper and 192,988 ounces of gold doré.

Sepon is owned by Chifeng Jilong Gold Mining Co., Ltd (Chifeng) and the Lao Government, with Chifeng holding a 90% stake. Chifeng is a reputed metals producer with operations in China and recently acquired the Wassa Gold mine in Ghana. They aim to expand into a mid-tier international mining company by acquiring high-quality gold projects.

Notably, Sepon is set to operate the first modern underground mine in Laos, extending its mine life and contributing to poverty reduction and sustainable development in host communities. With a commitment to sustainability, Sepon utilizes a whole-of-ore leach and SX-EW process to produce copper cathodes. Additionally, the company has recently invested in new facilities and equipment to improve gold recovery and extend its mine life.

Sepon's innovative approach includes the implementation of a heap leach pilot program, which enables the processing of low-grade primary copper resources that would otherwise be uneconomical. This method reduces costs and enhances efficiency, ensuring the continued success and longevity of Sepon's operations. By consistently delivering high-quality products and prioritizing environmental stewardship and community welfare, Sepon has established itself as a trusted and responsible brand in the mining industry
