Coming Clean!

"We are creating very few jobs...the direct employment from the mining sector is only 1.7 per cent...Go to the Copperbelt, look around and what you see is a ghost town in many ways. Everything has collapsed; the social sector and the mines are just sitting there, sinking new operations in the middle of this devastation. We have a lot of work to do to establish ourselves as a copper country with proper effect on the people"
(Vice President, Zambia)

  1. I'm sure the kabwe town is due to be revived because of the Kabwe lead and zinc mine opening it is just pending ZUMA approval. This will create a lot of employment as well as rehabilitating a town with lead poisoning. The company is called Enviro Processing Ltd a subsidiary of a UK company named Berkeley Mineral Resources.
