Fidelity Printers and Refineries says it has so far received 24.74 tonnes of Gold in the first 8 months of the year.
In the month of August small scale miners contributed 3.03 tonnes of the 3.92 tonnes of gold delivered to Fidelity Printers and Refineries while large scale miners chipped in with 0.89 tonnes.
Commenting on the gold deliveries attained so far Zimbabwe Miners Federation council Chairman Makumba Nyenje said small scale miners are producing more than 3.03 tonnes per month but due to leakages most of the gold was finding its way outside the country.
Nyenje implored on government to readily avail funds to accredited gold buying agents to curb the leakages.
This year the gold delivery target has been pegged at 30 tonnes
