Mopani resume operations at Nkana, Mufulira

By Staff Reporter

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.

And Mopani has conscientised its workers to report unsafe practices and refuse to undertake any assignment deemed unsafe.

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

Mulenga said in a statement that the mining company which declared a safety work stoppage last month 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 benefited 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,” he said.
