Nine Major mines on the Copperbelt and North-Western Provinces have been migrated from manual monthly minerals production reporting to the electronic submission of reports on the Mineral Output Statistical Evaluation System (MOSES).

The migration of mines to electronic reporting is a major milestone achieved under the Mineral Value Chain Monitoring Project (MVCMP) and the Mineral Production Monitoring Support Project (MPMSP) that have been tasked to develop an integrated online Mineral Output Statistical Evaluation System (MOSES).

Speaking in Lusaka, Ministry of Mines and Minerals Development Director of Minerals Development Mooya Lumamba says the nine mines starting from September 15, 2017 will no longer submit any manual monthly production reports.

The mines that have been migrated are Chibuluma Copper Mine, Chambishi Metals, Chambishi Copper Smelters, Luanshya Copper Mines, Lubambe Copper Mines, Lumwana Copper Mining, FQM Kalumbila Copper Mine, Sino Metals and NFCA Copper Mining Company.

According to Mr. Lumamba, the other three major mining companies; FQM Kansanshi Copper and Gold Mine, Konkola Copper Mines, and Mopani Copper Mine will be migrated to electronic reporting in October 2017.

And Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) Commissioner for Modernisation and Corporate Strategy Dingani Banda has applauded the migration of the nine major mining companies to electronic mineral production reporting.

Mr. Banda says this is a great milestone in achieving the Government’s objective of having an integrated electronic system for reporting production and issuance of export permit for the mining sector.

This is contained in a statement issued to QTV News by MVCMP Communications Consultant Kunda Mwila.

    • REMEMBER:
      1. GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT
      2. MINING COMPANIES ARE HERE TO MAXIMISE PROFITS AND SO WILL MASSAGE THE FIGURES AS THEY HAVE ALWAYS DONE
      3. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD SET UP A PERMANENT REVOLVING TEAM OF INSPECTORS TO VERIFY A LOT OF THE DATA (REVOLVING SO AS TO STOP THE INEVITABLE CORRUPTION)
      4. THE INSPECTORS SHOULD BE PERSONS WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY WORKED AT THE RELEVANT DEPARTMENTS AT THESE MINES WITH RELEVANT EXPERIENCE
      5. THE EXPORTS SHOULD BE CHECKED BY FACELESS BUREAUCRATS
      OTHERWISE THE WHOLE EXERCISE WILL BE A WASTE OF TIME

  1. I expect , TALLYING PROBLEMS because what ever is produced must be first recorded manually on form G12 then feed into the computer for totalling or tallying , eh..thus where the problem comes now at TALLYING, EVEN KENYANS FAILED TWICE UNTIL THIS YEAR THEY HAVE TO REPEAT ELECTIONS ON MANUAL , FORGET FYABASUNGU

  2. There will still be talking problems these mines will either tell ZRA that ore grade is bad or concentrator recoveries are not good either.

    The best wayvis to employ people who understand these things. Electronic data is fed manually by each mine and not government, and you expect those figures to be accurate? Guys you have not moved at all but at the same point.

    Ask you shall be guided and not that waste of time and resources program you think is a good.
