Mimosa’s new optimisation plant running

Story by Courage Bushe

THE US$38 million optimisation plant which has been commissioned at Mimosa Mine in Zvishavane is expected to contribute to the growth of the mining industry with production set to increase by six percent.

Through its investment in setting up the Mimosa Optimisation Plant, the Zvishavane-based platinum giant is operationalising the National Development Strategy One.

The new plant, which was completed and commissioned this year, will see production at the mine surging by six percent.

In an interview with ZBC News on the sidelines of a media tour this Thursday, Mimosa Mining Company General Manager, Mr Steven Ndiyamba noted the significance of the plant towards the attainment of a US$12 billion mining economy by the end of this year.

He said, “As Mimosa, we decided that one way we would contribute to that target is to ensure that our current operations are efficient and we are getting the most out of the materials that we are treating. So, we embarked on the optimisation project and improve on recoveries. In other words, the amount of metals that we get for every tonne of ore is passing through the plant. So, that plant was designed to get the most out of the material.”

The optimisation plant is for managing, tracking and planning for the movement of material with much more accuracy than simple production tracking systems.

Meanwhile, the platinum mining company intends to build a 38-megawatt solar power station for its operations and contribute to government’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
