Zambian mining trade event enjoys high-level Zambian support
The upcoming Copperbelt Mining Trade Expo and Conference or CBM-TECin Zambia’s mining hub Kitwe from 28-29 April is offering free-to-attend sessions on the exhibition floor for all visitors. These focus not only on the next exploration hot spots in Zambia but also on solutions to ensure optimal quality in mining operations and processing.
Zambia’s Minister of Mines, Energy and Water Development, the Hon. Christopher Yaluma, will be the keynote speaker at CBM-TEC which is organised in association with Electra Mining Africa.
CBM-TEC Expo workshop programme:
Chamber of Mines
The CEO of the Chamber of Mines of Zambia, Mrs Maureen J Dlamini, says the skills shortage is a problem at the moment “though industry is trying to come up with training interventions that may improve the quality and quantity of skills.” The Chamber is an official partner of CBM-TEC and the President of the Chamber, Mr. Emmanuel Mutati, is a featured speaker during the conference. Says Mrs Dlamini: “the industry itself is pooling its resources with the Chamber, government and training institutions to come up with skills development programmes to increase and improve the skills base of the sector. In so doing we are providing a pool of resources that the new investors can employ when starting their operations.”
The exhibition space is sold out and more than 80 leading names in the mining community have confirmed as exhibitors including: Murray & Roberts Zambia, Barloworld, Specialty Emergency Services, Mintek, Verder Pumps, Oryx oil, Set Point Zambia and more.
