History of Umicore gold bars

The oldest predecessor of the current Umicore was founded in 1837, namely the Société Anonyme des Mines et Fonderies de Zinc de la Vieille-Montagne. Union Minière was founded in 1906, the main activity of which was mining rich minerals in the former Belgian colony of Congo. Other activities ensued in 1968 after the government in Zaire decided to nationalize property. In 1989, a union took place between Union Minière and Vieille-Montagne, Mechim and metallurgy Hoboken-Overspelt and Union Minière became an industrial group.
