The African continent is rich in valuable metals and is positioned to supply the world for decades to come. It’s estimated that up to 40% of the world’s gold is located in Africa - plus 80 - 90% of its reserves of chromium and platinum. Infrastructural development of transport, trade routes, power and telecommunications networks have meant countries such as Tanzania, Mozambique, Uganda and Zambia are now sitting at the forefront of the supply chain.

Production of Copper in Zambia
According to the Bank of Zambia (BoZ), output increased in 2013 by 21% to more than 950 000 tonnes, while preliminary national accounts figures suggest expansion was only 5%.
Output is projected to further increase to 1.5 million tonnes as new copper mining operations come on stream in North-Western province in the next few years. These include the new Sentinel Mine and the expansion of the Kansanshi and Lumwana mines, which combined will account for more than 370 000 tonnes. Output at the Konkola Deep is projected to increase by 200 000 tonnes, while Konkola North is expected to add 50 000 tonnes to total copper output.
