CNMC Luanshya Copper Mines Plc - ZCCM Investments

2016-7-21  CNMC planned to produce 43,000t of copper metal which included 19,000t copper inconcentrate from Baluba Mine and 24,000t of copper cathode from Muliashi Mine. By theend of the shift on 31 December 2013, Baluba Mine and Muliashi Mine produced 16,484tand 24,114t of copper metal respectively. Thus in 2013 the total copper production was40,298t, representing 93.72% of the annual plan. As noted, Muliashi Mine achieved itsannual production target for 2013 whilst Baluba Mine did not achieve its annualproduction target. The failure is attributed to the breakdown of the long-hole drillingmachine which resulted into heavy losses of ore reserves for mining. To keep the mineproduction continuous, the cut-off grade was reduced from 1% to 0.8%. Secondly, sincethe mining tonnage was not enough, a lot of low-grade ore was reclaimed from old stopeswhich made the head ore grade lower than the annual target. Other than the two reasons,high operating costs and the low ore grade also made Baluba Mine
