African Mining Brief learns from Reuters that after suspension in august 2015, Zambia’s ministry of mining has now resumed issuance of new mining licences, renewal and transfer of rights.

In a media briefing, Christopher Yaluma, the mining minister, said that the suspension gave the government time to revise regulations to improve the administration of mining and non-mining rights. ” In view of this development, I wish to declare the resumption of the issuance, renewal and transfer of mining rights and non-mining rights with effect from Monday (9 February 2016),” he explained.
