Welcome dear reader to the 1st edition of Mining Zimbabwe Magazine of 2021. Like everyone else in the industry we always wish to have the best functioning mining industry and this year is no exception. We strongly feel a lot of challenges in the sector in particular “Illegal mining” is due to incapacitation of the mining industry which is caused by the total neglect of mining industry by the government in particular. One cannot surely expect the mining industry to run smoothly when its parent ministry is in a sore state as it currently is in. One of the mineral richest provinces Mash west has only two vehicles which like any machines will face mechanical challenges yet those vehicles are expected to process over 4000 applications. This means each vehicle has to pay 2000 mine site visits. Surely it will be over 6-7 years before last years’ application is processed!
We wish you all a Happy safe festive season and always stay updated with Zimbabwe mining affairs by visiting our website www.miningzimbabwe.com. Enjoy the read!!
