MOPANI Copper Mines says the firm is determined to turn around its operations to effectively contribute to the country’s economic development despite the slump in copper prices on the international market.
According to the company’s latest newsletter released in Kitwe yesterday, MCM chief executive Johan Jansen said that management is working hard to transform the firm from being one of the least profitable mines globally, to a top international copper producer and a world-class company by 2023.
“With the right attitude, we, as a workforce, can become safe, competent and motivated, and work together towards a common goal. Our plan has to be sustainable to ensure all of Mopani’s stakeholders benefit not just today, but also in future,” Mr Jansen said.
He said the capital expansion projects the mining firm is undertaking in Kitwe such as the newly-commissioned Synclinorium Mindola and Mufulira mine shafts demonstrate its commitment towards the development of the country’s mining sector.
