Zimbabwe set to revive closed mines

24 february 2009

The new inclusive government in Zimbabwe intends to resuscitate all closed mines and introduce policies to revive the mining sector, the country’s Mines and Mining Development Minister Obert Mpofu has said.
Among mines that were closed due to operational constraints are Trojan Mine, Shangani Mine, Shamva Gold Mine, Mhangura and Madziva Mine.
Zimplats and Bindura Nickel Corporation also suspended expansion programmes.
"Co-operation from all stakeholders is of paramount importance to revive the mining sector. We do not want a wait-and-see attitude. The government is ready to work with the mining sector at its best,” he said.
"Plans are underway to ensure that all closed mines must become operational and the government will put in place measures to capacitate the sector.”
He said the industry must exploit mining resources to revive the economy and that all transactions outside business would not be tolerated.
"The inclusive government needs positive results," he said.
Zimbabwe had been experiencing rampant illegal diamond mining, which took off four years ago, following the discovery of the gems in Manicaland province.
However, the government moved in to stop the practice late last year, which prejudiced the troubled southern African country nearly USD1, 2-billion a month.
