President Mnangagwa set to commission Kamativi Mine spodumene processing plant

Story by Josephine Mugiyo, Diplomatic Correspondent

PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa is this Friday set to commission the Kamativi Mine Spodumene Processing Plant.

Once a vibrant mine known for tin production, the entity shut down in 1994.

30 years later, it is re-opening as a lithium mine, bringing back life to Kamativi which had become a ghost town and providing jobs for the community.

Under the first phase, the aim is to produce 100 000 tonnes of lithium concentrate per year .

A number of new mines are opening under the Second Republic and apart from Kamativi Mine , Sabi Star Mine in Buhera and Zulu Lithium Mine in Matabeleland South are set to boost the country’s lithium production.
