Consolidated Gold Company of Zambia Limited (CGCZ) Extract from 2022 Annual Report

Consolidated Gold Company of Zambia Limited (CGCZ) is a joint venture partnership between ZCCM-IH (45%) and Karma Mining Services and Rural Development (55%). Incorporated in the year 2020, this Special Purpose Vehicle is focused on developing a gold processing and trading hub in Zambia.  

During the year ended 31 December 2022, the Company produced 50.7kg (2021: 46.6kg) of gold majority of which was sold to Zambia Gold Company. Income for the year ended 31 December 2022 was ZMW50.81 million (2021: loss of ZMW 44.97 million). CGCZ recorded a loss for the year of ZMW8.76 million (2021: -ZMW10.22 million).  

Due to persistent lack of profits as a result of the Company’s lack of control of the supply of gold feedstock, the ZCCM-IH Board approved a divestment from CGCZ. ZCCM-IH will still recover its initial investment of US$1.568 million over a period of three years.
