Saindak Copper-Gold Project (SCGP)
SCGP is a copper mining project owned by Government of Pakistan. The MCC Holding Hong Kong Corp.Ltd. and MCC Petroli Hong Kong Corp.Ltd. constructed the project under agreement with Government of Pakistan from 1990-1995 on turnkey basis. The project remained idle up to 2002, when Pakistan's government sought for foreign investors to provide funding for the project. The MCC won the bidding for a 10-year lease up to October 2012 and started the commercial production of the SCGP. The agreement was further extended for a period of 5 years up to October 2017. The agreement was again extended for another period of 5 years up to October 2022.

Nickel mining in Papua New Guinea
Ramu NiCo Management (MCC) Limited ('Ramu NiCo') is currently constructing a nickel mine in mountains above the Ramu River and processing plant on the Rai Coast of the Madang Province of Papua New Guinea. Ramu NiCo's web site says the company is 'sponsored by' China Metallurgical Group Corporation and that at US$1.4 billion its project is China's largest overseas mining investment. The company says the project has a total reserve of 140 million tons of nickel and will have a mine life of 40 years.
The project has sparked controversy over its deep sea tailings disposal plan, previously approved by the PNG Department of Environment and Conservation, and blasting work to build the outlet was halted by an injunction in the National Court of Papua New Guinea on 19 March 2010.[unreliable source?]
