Zambia Copper Investments branching out

first_imgZambia Copper Investments (ZCI) believes that despite the large number of institutions operating in the region, significant growth opportunities exist within selected niche areas of activity. “Such opportunities exist in base metals and energy minerals in Central Southern Africa.” It has therefore put forward a new business plan.ZCI’s objectives would include:To develop and maintain an outstanding portfolio of mining and metals assets which diversify risk and provide sustainable earnings growthTo maximise the return on investment on each asset in the portfolio by adopting a disciplined investment approachTo create and maintain a market profile which would enhance the marketability of its shares and create wealth and income for all of ZCI’s stakeholdersTo develop strong relationships with governments of host countries and local communities that ZCI would be invested in and be recognised as a key partner in national resource development.“ZCI, therefore, has an excellent opportunity of becoming a significant player by adopting a strategy of becoming a minerals and metals investment company across the sub-region, and not merely an operator of just one large asset in one country. This is important in order to obtain controlled exposure to different risks and rewards arising from various base metals and energy mineral deposits in different countries and to exploit different emerging opportunities in the sector.“In order to realise this vision, the current corporate structure of ZCI is to be changed. A management team with mining and metals experience and entrepreneurial flair focused on creating value for the shareholders has been put in place.”last_img
