    • Nothing to celebrate. These guys are trying to make it rich in Zambia. They have no real mining experience, have no operating assets/mines anywhere in the world and do not even have the capital. That’s what happens when you are desperate and ignorant. You get conned by anybody with a few dollars and a clever pickup line.

  1. The best news I have heard in a long time. Zambia is a hotbed for natural resources and we need to work out what is in it for us as the owners of the land (Zambians) Apart from the jobs created, we want these companies to partner with our local businessmen and general public in owning shares in these ventures. We don’t want to see “Stealing Africa” all over again. You can check it out…on Youtube. Stealing Africa…why poverty? Zambia’s copper case and how the country has been siphoned of billions of dollars through some dodgy dealings. Watch it and your support for certain governments will leave you angry and confused. If you love Zambia – then save Zambia.

    What?: Stealing Africa, why poverty?
