MASVINGO – Three large scale gold mines are opening in Masvingo, the Minister of Mines and Mining Development, Winston Chitando has said.
Chitando said this at the Zanu PF Masvingo Provincial Coordinating Committee held at the GZU School of Education on Saturday adding that one of the multi-million dollar mine will come on stream as early as December this year.
The mines are at Ngundu in Chivi, Zaka and Mashava. The one at Ngundu has already started shipping in equipment for the venture.
Production of gold is set to increase in the country as Masvingo Province is set to benefit from three multimillion dollar large scale gold mining companies which are going to start setting up shop in December this year.
“By 2023 Zimbabwe should be producing 100 tonnes of gold from large scale and small scale miners. In Masvingo alone there will be three more large scale gold mines in Mashava, Zaka and Ngundu. In December I will be in Ngundu together with the Minister of State (Ezra Chadzamira) to assess progress at the new mine,” said Chitando without revealing the identities of the investors.https://masvingomirror.com
