Division of Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM).
Plant practice descriptions are provided for several installations, including the expansions at Freeport Indonesia, ZCCM's Nchanga

Zambia's massive Nchanga
open pit copper mine is unlikely to operate beyond the turn of the century.
In mineral processing, construction of a flotation plant at Nchanga
is progressing well.

Mine into watercourses providing their only source of crop irrigation and drinking water.
