Mopani copper mines plc has confirmed that it has submitted a proposal to government and would resume mining operations as soon as an agreement is reached.

Mopani copper mines public relations manager Nebert Mulenga who revealed this to phoenix news says the mining firm will issue a notice of its intention to place its mining operations on care and maintenance after 90 days.

He says during the 90 day period, Mopani copper mines plc will continue to engage with the government on potential solutions to its current challenges.

This decision comes after the mine went against government’s directive not to place its Mufulira and Kitwe mines on care and maintenance which was followed by a 7 day ultimatum from the state couple with mine unions led protests in Kitwe.
