For three days, MTE will bring buyers and suppliers together across the southern African country in areas where there is a lot of mining activity.

The MTE cross border tour kicks off in Kalumbila on 20 August 2018, with an exhibition set to take place at the Impala Hotel between 12:00 and 17:00. One of the most prominent mines in Kalumbila is Sentinel, and it represents one the largest copper reserve in Zambia and the world, with estimated reserves of one billion tonnes of ore grading 0.51% copper.

Next the team will head to Solwezi on 22 August 2018, with an exhibition at the Royal Solwezi Hotel from 13:00 to 17:30. Solwezi is the capital of the Zambia’s North Western Province, home to about 65 000 inhabitants many of whom work in Solwezi’s main industry, copper mining. Kansanshi mine, one of Solwezi’s biggest mines, exploits copper-gold ore from Kansanshi Anticlinal and has been operating since the 19th century.

The last stop is Kitwe for the final leg of the tour. The show will take place at the Nkana Cricket Club on 24 August 2018 from 12:00 to 17:00. An exhibition of this magnitude provides an opportunity for local and international suppliers to showcase their products and services to mines in and around Zambia. MTE prides itself in being able to be the link between mines suppliers in the mining industry.
