Zambia is well endowed with a plethora of mineral deposits beyond copper, which have primarily been mined by Small Scale mining miners. These principally include gemstones – emerald, aquamarine, tourmaline, and amethyst. The map below shows the distribution of minerals across the country. More recently, gold and manganese have risen in importance. Several gold rushes have taken place over the last few years opening up new Small Scale miningsites all over the country. On top of this, a rise in demand for manganese on world markets has spurred on the production of the mineral in the northern province of Luapula. More recently, the Zambian government has also bequeathed large copper rich slug dumps in the Copperbelt province, colloquially referred to as black mountains, to political supporters introducing another category of urban politicized Small Scale Miners.

We follow the best practices
At Small scale Miners Association of Zambia, we have deep and broad experience in the range of transactions and other assignments that arise in the typical life cycle of a mine and metal production process. The group’s work ranges from representation of a Zambian multinational in its multi-billion dollar project financing related to a portfolio of Chilean copper mines to advising on a Scandinavian aluminum and renewable energy company’s multi-billion dollar acquisition.
