The Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe (MMCZ) today is in Zvishavane conducting ASM training on financial management, safety and health, mining as a business and environmental management.
MMCZ has been on a tour hosting training for ASM stakeholders since the 16th of November 2020 in Karoi, Zvishavane, Gweru and Harare areas.
The mineral marketer has been hailed by experts for the initiative and commended for following through on its promise.
“This will go a long way in informing the ASM community on how to effectively conduct business with the Corporation. As an advocate of ASM formalisation, I believe this kind of training initiative will provide hints on what is required in conducting formal mining business. The long-term effects of this will be an effective mining revenue system & also the elimination of leakages (so-called black market),” said a local expert.
Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe (MMCZ) was established through an Act of Parliament (MMCZ Act Chapter 21:04) and began operations in March 1983. It is 100% owned by the Government of Zimbabwe and falls under the ambit of the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development. It is an exclusive agent for marketing and selling of all minerals produced in Zimbabwe except silver and gold.
Its mission is to maximize returns to all its stakeholders through efficient marketing services and national mineral resource accounting.
