ZNBC on the possibility of a new copper mine for Mwinilunga :
North Western Province Permanent Secretary, Jeston Mulando says all is set for the establishment of a new open pit copper mine in Mwinilunga district. Mr. Mulando said Shungho Mining and Industry of Zambia has already applied for a licence from the ministry of mines to start operations. He said the company will start construction of a plant once the mining licence has been approved.
Mr. Mulando told ZNBC that the provincial administration has played its part by discussing with traditional leaders who have promised to offer land for the project. He appealed to the new Minister of Mines, Maxwell Mwale to help expedite the issuance of licenses to serious investors.
The new open pit copper mine is part of the K2 billion investment package by Shungho Mining in North Western province.
