Zambia is home to a world-class copper district known as the Zambian-Congo copper belt, which features a geological environment conducive to large, high grade and scalable copper deposits, including one of the world’s largest deposits.
A welcoming jurisdiction, Zambia has been a mining powerhouse for over 100 years and remains one of the largest copper producers in Africa and globally ranked as a top copper producing region. Critical to the Zambian economy, mining is responsible for over 75% of Zambia’s export earnings. Led by an elected, pro-mining government, the sector is governed and regulated by the Mines and Minerals Development Act No. 11 of 2015.
There is no question as to why Zambia is home to both world class mines and world class mining companies including First Quantum, Barrick, Rio Tinto, Anglo American and KoBold Metals.
