The Montanwerke Brixlegg AG is the only copper producer in Austria and specialises in the recovery of copper and other valuable metals from scrap copper and other secondary materials with copper content. The first mention of a copper and silver refinery in Brixlegg in documents dates back to 1463. At the beginning of the 20th century, following a decline in ore extraction in Tyrol, production was shifted to the recovery of copper from scrap metal alloys.
