Mopani Copper Mines Plc has with immediate effect resumed operations at its Nkana and Mufulira mine sites following an intensive safety audit of underground operations.

Mopani Copper Mines Plc public relations manager Nebert Mulenga has confirmed the resumption of operations at the two sites.

Mr. Mulenga said in a statement that the mining company which declared a safety work stoppage last ensured that during the suspension, all employees underwent supervisory and safety training sessions.

He added that the employees also signed commitment letters to undertake safe work.

“It is our hope that employees have benefitted from the supervisory and training sessions, which reinforced among other things, the duty and right of each and every employee to report unsafe practices and refuse to undertake any assignment deemed unsafe,” Mr. Mulenga has said.

    • I hear those Peruvians at Mopani always victimize learned Zambians both graduates and workmen to work unsafely. You know how fearful Zambians are. Shame..!

  1. Has the contract for Reliant been retained? If so then nothing has changed. If you can’t terminate their contract you can at least demand that their top management be replaced.

  2. People are suffering at this mine. This accidents are as a result of under paying of employees especially Zambian contractors it is hell. Just last month someone was showing me his payslip his basic pay is 800 plus some other incentives the net was k1050
    There are a lot of companies who are underpaying. Or even the same reliant where those guys lost there lives ask them when or the date they get paid they don’t even know. Imaging they paid them on the day of accident just apon realizing that. They might be investigated as to why they haven’t paid there workers. Our government always puts a blind eye on these issues. SAFETY IS THE STATE OF YOUR MIND. Now someone hasn’t been paid. And his told to go underground 05:45 and knock off 18:00 everyday. May our Government help our suffering…
