Mines Minister Richard Musukwa says Government has rejected Mopani Copper Mine’s plan to place Mufulira and Nkana plants including underground operations under care and maintenance.
He has further advised the mining firm to inform government if they have failed to run the mine.
This is on the back drop of the proposal the mine sent to government. The minister further indicated that the mine has been doing its restructuring for more than a year which is a sign that the mine is not being sincere.
More details to follow soon.
