Written by Panashe Madzinga on April 27, 2018
Vice President Constantino Chiwenga says government will soon set up its first gold processing centre in Inyathi, Matabeleland North, in a bid to increase gold production and boost national output.
VP Chiwenga said the gold processing centres are meant to boost the country`s gold production and where beneficiation will take place.
The centres are also targeting small scale gold producers who have become a significant contributor to the country`s gold production.
Zimbabwe’s annual gold output increased to 24,8 tonnes in 2017 from 21,1 tonnes the previous year driven by a rise in deliveries from small scale-miners.
