Zambia's African Explosives Ltd has signed its biggest ever explosives contract to supply the Lumwana copper mine.
AEL intends to invest more than $6-million to upgrade its production and deliver the required quantities of bulk emulsion. The company will build a bulk emulsion manufacturing plant in the mine's light industrial area. The plant, which was established for commissioning in September 2008, will have a capacity of 3 000t of bulk emulsion each month.
We understand that African Explosives does not make explosives for military use.
