Kansanshi copper-gold mine

Copper Concentrator Tailings Circuit Performance

The Kansanshi mine, the largest copper mine in Africa, is located in the North western province of Zambia near the bustling town of Solwezi.

The operations consist of two open pits, mined using conventional open pit methods and ore treatment facility which allows for variation in ore type either through an oxide circuit, a sulphide circuit and a transitional ore “mixed float” circuit.

The operation also has one of the world’s largest copper smelters — with a Plant Wide Control System (PWCS) designed and deployed by Mipac.
