Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

Jeffery Reeder, President and CEO of Duran Ventures (TSX.V: DRV), tells Miningclips they’ve just optioned their Panteria Copper-Gold project to First Quantum Minerals (TSX: FQ). Duran presented the First Quantum Team with a conceptual model of the potential for porphyry copper-gold mineralization on the property, leading to the signing of an option agreement. The deal calls for First Quantum to deliver a feasibility study in order to earn 80% of the project, including $0.5M in staged cash payments over five years. If First Quantum proceeds with a decision to mine, it has the option to buy the remaining 20-per-cent equity from Duran for two U.S. cents per pound of copper equivalent based on 20 per cent of delineated reserves or, Duran will retain a 0.5-per-cent net-smelter-return royalty, valued up to US$15M annually. Along with progress on their Aguila Norte Mineral Processing plant, looking to generate cash-flow in the near term, Duran stays true to their Business Model of being a Cash Generator and a Project Generator.

Once described as "a little known game reserve" by W.F Ansell, author of "An International History of Mammalogy (1991)" this unique National park is in need of support. Located in the Northwestern Province of Zambia, Africa, the West Lunga National park has faced years of neglect through lack of development, poaching and inaccessibility. In 2014 the Trident Foundation, a not-for-profit, was established in a new town development near to the park. The Wildlife and Conservation department have undertaken the mammoth task to assist the Department of National Parks and Wildlife to manage the park. Coverage over the 12,000 square kilometers has increased, as resources for patrols and communications have improved. This initiative is in need of additional support. For more information on the project, and how to get involved, email the address below: [email protected] Narrated by Dorian Tilbury, Wildlife and Conservation Coordinator at the Trident Foundation.

Ten killed in Zambia copper mine collapse: . Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd_ODCcrc4jEWgi4qYyy0wg?sub_confirmation=1 "The incident happened this morning and at least 10 people have been confirmed dead," Copperbelt police chief Charity Katanga said by phone from Kitwe, 400km north of the capital Lusaka. Zambia is Africa's second largest copper producer and houses operations of many global mining companies including Vedanta , Barrick Gold Corp and Glencore Glencore's Mopani Copper Mines (MCM) has been forced to halt production in recent years due to similar fatal incidents in the copper-rich area, which is also know for illegal mining around the dump sites. The latest incident happened at Black Mountain where artisanal miners have taken to remining the waste site for copper and other metals. In February the government's mining investment arm gave a 10 per cent stake in the waste site to small-scale miners to empower surrounding communities riven by unemployment and poverty. There remain, however, serious concerns about safety measures at the site which continues to suffer periodic collapses. #Ten, #killed, #Zambia, #copper, #mine, #collapse
