There has been mining in and around Veliki Majdan since the 14th Century. Modern exploration started in the 1930s, conducted initially by a London based mining company. Exploration, including extensive underground development continued until 1939, starting again after the end of the war. Concerted processing operations started in the 1960s and ran continuously until the outbreak of the civil war in late 1992. Only very limited mining occurred in the preceding decade, until Mineco acquired the mine in 2007 and returned it to full production.
