Zambia Kansanshi Copper Mine -mine-first__quantum_minerals_

Construction of a 590 km railway to serve the Copperbelt area of northern Zambia and the Angolan border is under consideration.The proposed 1 067 mm gauge line would be built in two phases. Phase one which would run 290 km from the existing railway and smelters at Chingola to the Kansanshi, Lumwana and Kalumbila mines.

 

Phase two would run to Jimbe on the border with Angola and then link with the Benguela Railway, providing a through route to the port of Lobito which could be used to import oil and support mining in the western Copperbelt.
