Phoenix Metal is a Tin smelter located in Karuruma/kigali in Rwanda.


The Karuruma tin smelter was built in the early 1980‟s to produce tin from concentrate coming from the "Société des Mines du Rwanda" ("SOMIRWA"). SOMIRWA managed the smelter until 1985 when it went bankrupt. The smelter was reopened at the end of 1990 by a company called ALICOM but was closed again in April 1994 when the genocide started. The Government of Rwanda, who owned the smelter, sold it as part of its privatisation program. The plant is located near Kigali, the Rwandan capital.
