Economic Geology

Copper and cobalt In excess of one billion tonnes of ore (c.2.7% Cu) have been mined from the mines of the Copperbelt and conservative estimates suggest that a further two billion tonnes await exploitation. The copper-cobalt mineralization is stratabound within arenites, shales and carbonate rocks of the lower-Katanga Mine Series Group.

Process mineralogical characterisation of the Kansanshi …

Copper mineralisation at Kansanshi occurs as both vein-hosted mineralisation, and to a lesser extent sediment-hosted mineralisation. Later breccia-hosted and supergene mineralisation have overprinted all previous mineralisation styles. Chalcopyrite is the main ore mineral for both vein-hosted and sediment-hosted mineralisation styles.

Zambia's history of copper production — Part 1

Records of small-scale copper production date back to 1908 and 1911, when mining took place at Kansanshi and Bwana Mkubwa mines, respectively. Almost 100 years has passed since sustained commercial-scale mining began in Zambia, when extensive exploration projects led to the discovery of substantial copper deposits in the 1920s.

Lufilian copper–gold mineralization in the Mkushi District, …

The copper–gold mineralization in the Mkushi district of central Zambia is hosted by Paleoproterozoic metamorphic rocks of the Mkushi gneiss (~ 2040 Ma) and Mesoproterozoic intrusions of the Irumide Belt (~ 1020 Ma).
