MINING giant, Bravura Group of Companies has unveiled plant equipment that will be used for lithium processing in Kamativi area of Matabeleland North province.

The latest venture will see a huge lithium processing plant being installed in the area by mining giant, Bravura.

The plant, which is being assembled in Johannesburg, South Africa by the Manhattan Corporation is nearing completion and will be brought into the country for installation within the next few weeks.

“This is a huge project for us which will have an impact on the Mining sector. We are here to show you all the equipment that is being assembled and will be shipped to Zimbabwe in the next few weeks. It is an investment that will have a big impact,” said Head of Kamativi Project, Bravura Group of Companies, Dr Tafadzwa Murinzi.

The contractor, Manhattan says it will take less than three months to complete onsite installations of the massive 27 conveyor belt plant in Kamativi.

Manhattan Corporation chief executive officer, Mr Chris Pouroullis said, “Once we are done and we start the installations, we won’t take more than 3 months. We started working on this plant from scratch and it has taken us 12 months which includes preassembling, testing and doing feasibility studies on site in Kamativi.”

The Zimbabwean government is convinced the huge investments are a step in the right direction in terms of the broader national developmental vision.

“Projects of this magnitude have a huge bearing in the nation. We are seeing the equipment for the plant and it will soon be rolling into the country. This is great and as a government we are excited,” said Matabeleland North Deputy Provincial Mining Director, Engineer Leonard Mtilimanja.

Once complete, the plant will create over 100 direct jobs for locals.
