Industry Insight - Mining

Zambia: The copper production fell by 13% to 54,500 tonnes in January 2010 from 62,600 tonnes in the same month last year, due to some mining closures. Cobalt production in January 2010 rose to 734 tonnes from 367 tonnes in January 2009. The increase was attributed to the resumption of operations by Zambia's largest cobalt producer, Chambishi Metals.
