Government has held a consultative meeting with Mopani Copper Mine, the families of the four miners that perished in the mine accident and other stakeholders to determine the way forward on the accident.
Chief government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili told ZANIS in Kitwe yesterday that the nation will be informed today about the decision that has been arrived at in the meeting which he described a fruitful.
Four miners died at Mopani Copper Mine in Kitwe over a week ago after a rock fall in an underground pit when the area curved in at the South Ore Body (SOB) shaft.
The search for the remains of the deceased miners has continued as it enters day 11 today and so far a limb which was confirmed to have been retrieved is the major retrieval that has been made so far.
Vice President Inonge Wina, Mines Minister Christopher Yaluma and First Lady Esther Lungu have also visited the funeral houses for the four minors in Kitwe.
The deceased are Arnold Mambwe, Honest Mushota, Emmanuel Kyongola and Abel Munthali who were all machine operators.
The cause of the accident has not yet been established.
