Zimbabwe invites investment in underground chrome mining (Mining Weekly)
Wednesday, 8th November 2017
JOHANNESBURG (miningweekly.com) – Zimbabwe on Wednesday invited chrome mining investors to focus on underground chromium operations rather than cheaper strip mining operations, from which most of the country’s chromium ore is currently extracted. In a keynote opening address to the packed thirty-third Chromium Conference, Zimbabwe’s Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development Munesushe Munodawafa expressed the view that the future of chrome mining in the country lay in underground mining rather than the current opencast methods, which he described as being limited in both quantity and quality.
