REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST (EOI) FOR A CONSULTANT TO CONDUCT A FEASIBILITY STUDY INTO SETTING UP A PRECIOUS METALS PLANT

1.0 BACKGROUND
ZCCM Investments Holdings Plc (ZCCM-IH) is an investments holding company which has a majority of its investments held in the copper mining sector of Zambia. ZCCM-IH’s majority shareholders are the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) with 60.3%, Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) with 17.3% shareholding, National Pensions Scheme Authority (NAPSA) with 15% and other shareholders with 7.4%.

The company has a primary listing on the Lusaka Stock Exchange and secondary listings on the New York Stock Exchange, Paris Euronext (Euronext) and London Stock Exchanges.
ZCCM-IH has been mandated by the GRZ to spearhead the development of the gold sector in Zambia. This will be achieved in four (4) ways:

  1.  ZCCM-IH opening up and operating its own gold mines under the dedicated subsidiary company, Zambia Gold Company (ZGC);
  2. ZCCM-IH entering into joint venture partnerships for mining and processing of gold;
  3. Formalization of the informal Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining (ASGM) sector, including purchases from the ASGM sector; and
  4. Re-establishment of a local Precious Metals Plant (PMP) to refine the gold and associated Precious Metals (PMs).

2.0 PROJECT RATIONALE
The Feasibility Study (FS) that ZCCM-IH plans to undertake is one that focuses on the re-establishment of a local PMP, whose principal feed is Anode Slimes from the Electro-Refineries (ERs) in the country. The PMP should, however, also make a provision for processing of other sources of gold, which includes:

  •  ZGC Gold production;
  • Production from joint venture operations;
  • Third party producers, including the ASGM sector; and
  • Dore anode produced by Kansanshi Mine plc (KMP), which is currently refined abroad.

The Zambian copper mining industry produces anode slimes (slimes) from the refining of Smelter anodes. These slimes were previously processed within the country from 1977 to 2004 at the Ndola Copper Refinery – Precious Metals Plant (NCR – PMP).

Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines Ltd. (ZCCM Limited) operated the NCR – PMP from 1982 to 2000, when it was privatized and ownership passed to Minerva (Zambia) Limited, a subsidiary of the Binani group. Minerva operated the NCR – PMP from 2000 until 2004, when the plant was shut down.

Subsequent to that, the slimes and other semi-processed precious metals such as the Dore anode produced by KMP have been shipped offshore for processing into final products.
The NCR – PMP produced the following products:

  • Gold, in bullion form;
  • Silver, in bullion form;
  • Platinum, Palladium and other PGMs such as rhodium, “platinum salts” form for further processing offshore;
  • Selenium, in flake form; and
  • Copper, in copper sulphate form, which was sent to the Leach plants for electro winning.

ZCCM-IH now invites eligible firms to indicate their interest in providing the above services. Interested firms must provide information to demonstrate that they are qualified to perform the services (brochures, description of similar assignments, experience in similar conditions etc.).

Interested firms may obtain further information at the address below during office hours between 08:00 – 13:00 hours and between 14:00 – 17:00 hours local time from Monday to Friday.

A firm will be selected using the Quality and Cost Based Selection (QCBS) method. Interested firms must submit one (01) original and three (03) hard copies of the Expression of Interest to the address below not later than Tuesday, 10th November 2020.

REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST (EOI) TO UPDATE THE 2017 BUSINESS CASE REVIEW FOR CENTRAL AFRICAN CEMENT – TENDER NO.: ZCCM-IH/060/2020

INTRODUCTION
ZCCM Investments Holdings PLC (“ZCCM-IH” or “the Company”) is an investments holdings company primarily holding key minority interests across the mining industry in Zambia. ZCCM-IH also has significant investments in diversified energy entities through strategic minority interests in Copperbelt Energy Corporation PLC (“CEC”). CEC is a power distribution and generation company that supplies power to all the major mines in Zambia and is listed on the Lusaka Securities Exchange. The Company also has shares in Maamba Collieries Limited, the largest producer of coal in Zambia which operates a 300 megawatts thermal power plant. The Company also has investments and exposure in financial services and the real estate sector.

ZCCM-IH has a primary listing on the Lusaka Securities Exchange (“LuSE”), and secondary listings on the Paris, Euronext and London Stock Exchange (“LSE”).

2. BACKGROUND
In 2017, the 2014 Central African Cement Company Limited (CAC) Business Case of the Cement Project (“Business Case”) located in the Maisiti District, Ndola, was reviewed and updated. The review process confirmed the viability of the Cement Project and hence the Cement Project proceeded. Given the delay (arising from meeting statutory requirements) in the commencement of construction of the CAC cement plant, there is a requirement that the CAC 2017 Business Case be reviewed yet again.

Therefore, it has now become critical to review the viability of the Cement Project including its concept as the competition from other cement producers is expected to have risen and market dynamics changed since the last Business Case review. The review and investigation shall include the material changes to the following factors such as pricing, demand, forex impact on the production cost and final pricing, statutory approvals and their validity and market absorption rate of cement.

3. OBJECTIVE OF THE ASSIGNMENT
The main objective of this assignment is to conduct a detailed review of and update the market study and commercial feasibility for the CAC Cement Project. This will involve reviewing and assessing the commercial viability of the project from market, strategic and competitive perspectives within Zambia and the region. The information generated from the market study may be used in the commercial feasibility. The consultant shall also be required to upgrade the Thermal Power Plant size from the 50MW to 200MW. This should be a standalone supplementary report. ZCCM-IH now wishes to engage a Consulting firm to update the 2017 Business Case Review for Central African Cement.

ZCCM-IH now invites eligible consultants to indicate their interest in providing the above services. Interested firms must provide information to demonstrate that they are qualified to perform the services (brochures, description of similar assignments, experience in similar conditions etc.) Interested consultants may obtain further information at the address below during office hours between 08:00 – 13:00 hours and between 14:00 – 17:00 hours local time from Monday to Friday. A consultant will be selected using Quality Based Selection (QBS) method. Interested consultants must submit one (01) original and three (03) hard copies of the Expression of Interest (EOIs) to the address below no later than Tuesday, 16 th June 2020.

Following the privatization of the assets of Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM) Ltd in 2000, ZCCM Investments Holdings (ZCCM-IH) Plc was left with the responsibility of addressing statutory and contractual environmental obligations of Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines Limited (ZCCM Ltd) which were not passed on to the new mine investors.

A number of environmental obligation were addressed by ZCCM-IH through the support of a World Bank supported project, the Copperbelt Environment Project (CEP) that closed in March 2011. Due to time and cost constraints some of the environmental obligation were not addressed although consultancies were commissioned by ZCCM-IH to assess the liabilities.

  • Construction of Bund wall around Overburdens dumps in Chingola.

Environmental obligation that had studies commissioned to assess closure cost included the Demolition and Clean-up of No. 1 Nkana Cobalt Plant in Kitwe. Consultancies were not commissioned to assess the Closure of Overburden Dumps No. 53 (OB53) and 54 (OB54) in Kitwe and the Construction of Bund wall around Overburdens dumps in Chingola, although a joint assessment of cost for the latter was estimated by representative of ZCCM-IH and Konkola Copper Mines Plc.
