In 1975, a fully integrated copper complex, spanning from mining to refining, commenced operations at Khetri with a refining capacity of 31,000 tonnes of copper. In November 1982, the country's largest hard rock open-pit mine began operations at Malanjkhand in Madhya Pradesh, boasting a capacity of 2 million tonnes of ore.

In June 2015, the secondary copper smelter and refinery unit, capable of producing 50,000 tonnes per annum of copper cathodes conforming to LME-A grade, was acquired in Jhagadia, Gujarat.

Hindustan Copper Limited’s registered office is located in Kolkata. The Government of India owns 66.14% stake in the company as of September 30, 2023.
