Mining companies in Zambia are focused on extracting the country’s vast copper, uranium and gold deposits. In 2009, mining companies in Zambia together produceda total of 655 000 tonnes of copper – according to USGS figures.
Projects IQ’s online database, Africa Mining IQ, keeps track of these projects – from grassroots and feasibility, through to operational and dormancy stages – helping individuals and mining companies in Zambia and around the world to stay on top of the latest trends and developments. Mining companies in Zambia are also documented on Africa Mining IQ’s datasheets with references to acquisitions, mergers, and joint ventures.
Some mining companies in Zambia with operational projects include the Equinox Minerals and Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM), First Quantum Minerals LTD (Australia), Chambishi Copper, Metorex LTD, Red Rock Resources, Gemfields PLC (UK), Konkola Copper Mines PLC, Equinox Minerals, Mopani Copper Mines, Albidon LTD, and DRA Mineral Projects (PTY) LTD. Each of these projects is detailed in Africa Mining IQ’s extensive database, which provides contact details, continuous updates and project histories.
One of the largest operational projects undertaken by mining companies in Zambia includes the Lumwana Mine – valued at over ZAR4.3 billion. According to Africa Mining IQ, this development consists of two main deposits (Malundwe and Chimiwungo), and has 901 million tonnes of material with a grading of 0.7% copper. Significant cobalt and minor gold deposits are also present. Mining companies in Zambia have predicted it will produce 169 000 tonnes copper metal per annum for the first 6 years of its expected 37-year lifespan.
This type of information can help mining companies in Zambia and around the world develop long-term plans, assist in the tendering process, keep track of investments made and identify new business opportunities. Information, such as contact details etc., on the actual mining companies in Zambia is also available to our customers.
In addition to detailing physical mining companies in Zambia, Africa Mining IQ also keeps track of mineral refinement companies. The largest project detailed on our database is the ZAR2.3 billion Chambishi Copper Smelter – run by the Chambishi Copper mining company. Africa Mining IQ’s data shows project history going back to February 2007, future output predictions, and detailed future plans for this facility. This helps mining companies in Zambia to establish relationships with mineral processing organisations at an early development stage to plan future joint ventures for more profitable mining in the country.
