ZCCM-IH Starts Mining Maganese In Serenje

The ZCCM-IH has started operations at its Manganese mine in Serenje, Central province, with expected production of 240, 000 thousand tonnes annually, once commercial production is achieved.

This is through ZCCM-IH’s Kabundi Resources, with an initial capital of K18.6 million.

The start of operations follows the end of the rains, which had hampered the project, as there was a challenge in accessing the mine area.

Phase two of the operations is expected to start before the onset of this year’s rain season, with large scale exploration in the same area.

ZCCM-IH Chief Executive Officer, Mabvuto Chipata says the mine will be fully operational by July 2020, and the company is looking forward to having it officially launched by August, this year.

Mr Chipata has also visited the Kampumbu Resettlement area, which is earmarked for relocation of 9 households, displaced from the Kabundi mine site.

He has explained that ZCCM-IH will spend K4.5 million to fulfil the relocation of affected families.

This is according to a statement availed to ZNBC news today by ZCCM-IH Public Relations Manager, Loisa Kakoma.
