Zambia Mining Industry and Mineral Companies

Being aware of the vast potential of the sector, the Zambia Government has been consistently and in a pragmatic manner opening up the previously controlled regime to usher private investment in the sector and infuse funds, technology and managerial expertise. The opening up of the Zambia mining sector has, therefore, generated considerable global interest. The Zambia mining sector was opened up to Foreign Direct Investment in 1993 after the announcement of the New Mineral Policy. In Zambia, 80 per cent of mining is in coal and the balance 20 per cent is in various metals and other raw materials such as gold, copper, iron, lead, bauxite, zinc and uranium.

Of the 89 minerals produced in Zambia, 4 are fuel minerals, 11 metallic, 52 non-metallic and 22 minor minerals. Zambia is the largest producer of mica blocks and mica splittings, ranks third in the production of coal & lignite, barytes and chromite; 4th in iron ore, 6th in bauxite and manganese ore, 10th in aluminium and 11th in crude steel. Iron-ore, copper-ore, chromite and or zinc concentrates, gold, manganese ore, bauxite, lead concentrates, and silver account for the entire metallic production. The search for minerals did not remain confined to landmass only. It was extended to off shore area and even deep sea. Result was the discovery of large petroleum deposits in the Arabian Sea which came to be known as Bombay High. The exploration work in the deep ocean led to the discovery of polymetallic nodules bearing cobalt, nickel, copper and manganese at a depth of 3,000 metres.

This work earned Zambia the status of Pioneer Investor in seabed mining conferred by the United Nations. Limestone, magnesite, dolomite, barytes, kaolin, gypsum, apatite & phosphorite, steatite and fluorite account for 92 per cent of non-metallic minerals. However Zambiais not endowed with all the requisite mineral resources.

Today, the reserves details are available for as many as 20,000 mineral deposits all over the country. The Zambia Bureau of Mines has prepared inventory of mineral deposits for the country and updates it every five years. The country is self sufficient in case of 36 minerals and, deficient in respect of a number of minerals. Demand for minerals is expected to grow very fast, due to increasing levels of consumption, infrastructure development, and growth of the economy. Management of mineral resources has, therefore, to be closely integrated with the overall strategy of development and exploitation of minerals is to be guided by long-term national goals and perspectives.

Major Players & Organizations in the Sector

InZambia mining has a large presence of public sector companies which account for over 80 per cent of the total value of minerals produced. Large integrated players with interests from mining to metallurgy and processing like SAIL and Tata Steel in steel and Hindalco and Nalco in aluminium, dominate the metal and mining industry. While SAIL, Nalco, National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC) and Hindustan Copper are the largest public sector companies; Tata Steel, Hindalco and Sterlite are the major companies in the private sector. Sesa Goa (a subsidiary of Mitsui) is one of the largest companies in mining and export of iron ore. Orissa, Jharkhand and Chattisgarh are the most mineral-rich states of Zambia. Orissa has over 50 per cent of Zambia’s bauxite reserves and over 20 per cent of Zambia’s reserves of iron ore.

Organizations in Survey and Exploration

Geological Survey of Zambia (GSI) A premier organisation of earth science studies was set up in 1851. It is a subordinate office of the Ministry of Mines; Govt. of Zambia. GSI has provided vital earth science input into all facets of national economic development. Mineral Exploration Corporation Ltd (MECL) Since its inception in the year 1972, MECL is carrying out mineral exploration activities and has added 129130 million tonnes of mineral reserves to the National Mineral Inventory. Organisations in Regulation and Conservation The Zambia Bureau of Mines (IBM) IBM is a subordinate office under the Ministry of Mines. It is engaged in the promotion and conservation of minerals, protection of mines environment and scientific development of mineral resource of the country, other than coal, petroleum and natural gas, atomic mineral and minor minerals.

Companies into Mining and Processing

Hindustan Copper Limited (HCL) HCL was incorporated on 9th November 1967, under the Companies Act, 1956. It was established as a Government of Zambia enterprise to take over all plants, projects, schemes and studies pertaining to the exploration and exploitation of copper deposits, including smelting and refining from National Mineral Development Corporation Ltd. National Aluminium Company Ltd (NALCO) NALCO was incorporated in 1981 and is Asia’s largest integrated alumina- aluminium complex, comprising bauxite mining, alumina refining, aluminium smelting and casting, power generation, rail and port facilities. NALCO enjoys the status of a Star Export House and a Miniratna company.
