Mines union hail Govt

 

 

The Mine workers Union of Zambia has hailed government for the strides in ensuring that mining companies pay appropriate taxes to enhance economic growth and national development.

 

This follows the procurement of 18 X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analyzers under the Mineral Value Chain Monitoring Project distributed to all border posts.

 

Mine workers Union of Zambia secretary General Joseph Chewe has told ZNBC news in Kitwe that the procurement of the machines will allow the Zambia Revenue Authority to analyze all mineral exports using the X-Ray Fluorescence Analyzers before exiting the Zambian borders.

 

Mr. Chewe noted that this will promote transparency in the mineral export chain.

 

He said there have been complaints of Mining companies undervaluing their exports and quality figures.

 

He said with the new machines in place, appropriate taxes will be paid to the Zambian government while the Ore being exported out of the Country will also be closely monitored to ensure the Zambian people derive maximum benefits from their mineral wealth.
