The zinc deposits, in Limburg, were known earlier than the Napoleonic period, but it was the emperor who promoted their exploitation. The concession was granted to a Liège chemist, who designed a furnace suitable for economic processing of the mineral. He sold it in 1813 to a Brussels banker, Dominique Mosselman. He, together with the Banque de Belgique, founded this company in 1837. It soon acquired a worldwide reputation for zinc. The main mine was exhausted in 1884, and the last mine on the concession closed in 1937
