Discussions are underway with one very important potential local supplier, Sable Zinc, EPL’s immediate neighbour, on the possible use of their tailings which are currently deposited at their tailings storage facility at a rate of about 10 000 tpm. The tailings are being dumped on the EPL’s property (Stand 5187) under the condition of a notarial lease entered into between Enviro Pro Limited and Sable Zinc. The feed that Sable Zinc uses is a copper ore that is imported from Glencoe’s operations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The resultant tailings from their Solvent Extraction and Electrowining processes are potentially a sulphide copper ore, as virtually all the oxide copper has been leached out. Visual inspection of this material and chemical analysis thereof by Sable Zinc, indicate that this material has a grade of ± 4-5% Cu (Sulphide – most probably bornite) and could therefore be a valuable ore supply, given their tailings output rate.

6.10.6 The No Mining Option
If the project does not proceed, Kabwe mine dumps will continue to be a health risk to the people in the area. The town will also lose on the economic benefits from the KLRP&CPP.
Based on the potential environmental impacts, positive socio-economic aspects, project viability and minimum 8-year life of the project, it is evident that the ‘no mining option’ cannot be successfully argued.
****************************************************************************
BMR's Activities will end up smelling of roses!

7.5.2 Closure Phase
At closure, all processing activities will cease and no water or effluent will be discharged from the facility. The dumps will be reprofiled and revegetated.
Phytoremediation, including landscaping and sustainable non-food crop farming, such as roses, which in recent studies have proven to absorb high levels of lead.

The final tailings material will be cleaner in terms of lead and zinc content.
Table 7-16 below shows the significance rating of surface water contamination during project closure after implementing the mitigation measure. The significance rating is predicated to be VERY LOW (12 - Negative).
*****************************************************************************************************

Additionally, various focus group discussions with the Kasanda Township residents were held in the month of October 2013 about the upcoming project. The key findings are as shown below:
• The community is requested for employment opportunities arising from the project to be extended to them;
• Illegal stone crushing on various dumps near the project area was presented to be one of their main livelihood activity;
• Residents expressed happiness that finally EPL has come along to recover the remaining lead in the dumps which has lead the people of Kasanda Township to live

True my friend,
If this EIA is the same as others I've come across, once it's submitted it's usually the green flag to proceed.
So, once the enquiry / meeting / review is out if the way, hopefully we can proceed with haste.
MA has always been that way unfortunately, ever since I can remember. Most PIs that have sat and talked with him, either on the phone, or face to face, have all got a similar opinion.
With that, let's keep our fingers crossed that this time things will go as we want, instead of lining the MMs pockets

Anything can happen when it's BMR,
I'm glad the ESIA is on ZEMA website otherwise we would only have Masouds word for it!
And we know what that's worth

I don't disagree with you, but just making a point
You must know that in any meeting if this nature there will be people for it and people against it.
Personally I believe it benefits on and all, the locals, the country, the council, BMR, work force and the community, but just trying to make people think that there is always a flip side.

RE: Kabwe - public meeting
6 Apr '14
As I've mentioned before, if you read through the environmental pdf you'll see a lot of damage has already been done over the decades. Prevailing winds have dumped a lot of toxic dust onto villages 1-2km to the NW of the dumps, and quantities of pollutants there are above safety levels. In comparison, I don't think that us moving tens of tons at a time at a small area at the bottom of the dumps, with sprinklers in place, would pose anything like the same hazard as a strong wind blowing stuff off the tops of the whole tailings area. Anyway, what is the alternative? Concrete over the whole lot, Chernobyl style?

Maybe once in operation spin off may well have an inpact in this area needing funding

DTM

Noticed a couple of posts on DTM talking about dust concerns,
The plant will operate a wet process, requiring a volume of approximately 90 cubic metres of water per hour.
This will keep dust down also water sprinklers will be used I'm sure,
Tailing dumps are on the ground so dust will always be a problem until they are removed,
"Hydro-transportation of materials to minimise dust generation; also reduces carbon emissions from reduction in vehicle transportation requirements" I'm sure EPL has covered all issues which may cause problems,
We are cleaning up the mess left behind by others and the locals are all for it.
