Written by Panashe Madzinga on May 3, 2018
Government is seeking partners to resuscitate Sandawana Mine in Mberengwa.
The mine is owned by the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation (ZMDC) which is currently seeking joint venture partnerships to resuscitate its defunct gold and graphite mines across the country.
ZMDC acting general manager Mr Garikayi Chimhina says they have tendered Sandawana Mine which is endowed with minerals such as iron ore, gold, emeralds, tantalite and lithium.
Some of the other mines ZMDC is seeking to revive include Jena, Elvington and Lynx mines.
The emerald rich mine has been underutilised for several years, having first been exploited in 1955 when emeralds were discovered.
