Kitwe, Copperbelt, Zambia (July 2012)
I-CAT conducted dust suppression trials at several copper mines in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia. Trials were successfully completed at Mopani Copper PLC and Solwezi operations of First Quantum through the mining contracting companies JV Civils & Chantete.
The RDC20 product proved very successful and Chantete/JV Civils placed the first orders for both mines. Storage facilities and dosing stations are being built and I-CAT intends to open an office in Kitwe to deliver services to the mining industry in the region.
