Effective Mineral Resources Assessment Training Session held in Zambia by PanAfGeo-2 WP-B


The PanAfGeo-2 project organised a training session on Mineral Resources assessment in Kitwe, Zambia. The training, held from 11-21 March 2024, was attended by 21 participants from 12 African English-speaking countries, namely Egypt, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Botswana, Kenya, Eswatini, Libya, Malawi, Nigeria, and Liberia.

It was the third training session of the Work Package dedicated to Mineral Resources Assessment (WP-B). The ten-day training combined classroom-type sessions, lectures, practical lessons, and field trips to explore mines on-site. The theoretical lectures and practical lessons dealt with a variety of different topics with mineral resources assessment as a general theme. Additionally, the topics included economic aspects such as circular economy or the market for raw materials. During the visits to Nkana and Mufulira Cu-Co mines, trainees received on-site explanations about mineralisations and extraction methods and observed mining in action.
