A metal leak at the Flash Smelting Furnace at Konkola Copper Mines has forced interruption of operations at Zambia’s largest copper mine.

KCM Spokesperson Joy Sata confirmed in a statement that the metal leak occurred at about 17:15 hours yesterday through the side wall.

Mrs Sata said investigations are underway to assess the cause of the incident.

She said all emergency protocol worked as planned and that all miners at the Smelter were assembled accordingly and no one suffered any injury at all.

Mrs Sata said assessments of the repair works are in progress and will be known in the next 24hours and that the next update will be given by Monday.

Vedanta: Doesn't Expect Zambia Smelter Shtudown To Affect Copper Output
By Alex MacDonald and Nicholas Bariyo

LONDON--U.K.-listed Vedanta Resources PLC (VED.LN) said Tuesday that copper smelting output from its majority-owned Konkola Copper Mines unit won't be affected by an accident last weekend since the company has decided to move forward planned maintenance due later this year in order to coincide with planned repairs.
