The award ceremony took place yesterday in Warsaw. "It is a very special day for KGHM Polska Miedź SA, because today it turned out that we are not only the most valuable company in Poland in the mining industry and the most valuable company in Poland in the general classification, but also the largest global silver producer," said Herbert Wirth, the President and CEO of KGHM Polska Miedź SA.
