Ugandan Forum | General Chat

Here's a general chat for the Ugandan forum, for conversation and discussion on miscellaneous topics.

I am about to start a cleanup of the Ugandan forum, including formatting thread titles correctly, merging the duplicate threads and so forth. Hopefully the first step in increasing activity

SE9 can you change the name of this thread. I don't know what I was thinking. Ugandan Landscapes: The Pearl of Africa sounds (and looks) much better.

Also this thread I created, can you just merge it with the Economy & Infrastructure thread.

These two threads should be merged too if you haven't planned on it:

I was just watching the news and I just could not believe what the government did with the new anti gay law. Unbelievable, it sometimes make me ashamed to have been raised a Christian when they use religion to justify stupidity. This is just wrong regardless of cultural differences. Sad sad sad

Its just that most Ugandans are too depressed about having a lifetime president that they forget to post anything positive taking place.

Copper production to resume at Kilembe by ISAAC KHISA

Quote:
Copper mining at Ugandas Kilembe mines will resume later this year after a Chinese concessionaire completes its rehabilitation.

The bulk of the work on refurbishment of the machinery, which has been in disuse for more than three decades, is complete and production of copper concentrate will begin in May.

Copper smelting will follow three months later after metallurgical testing and installation of a small-scale smelter, according to Alex Kwatampora, project manager of the concessionaire, Tibet Hima Industry Company Ltd.

We are resuming production of concentrated copper to a purity of 28 per cent. We will then stockpile it as we look at setting up a small smelter unit to refine it close to 100 per cent between August and the end of the year, Mr Kwatampora added.

The metallurgical tests are intended to establish the quality of the copper and associated products that can be produced in country. The concession agreement requires them to export only finished copper products such as electrical conductors.

Unlike the past when the concentrate was transported to a refinery in Jinja, more than 400km northeast of Kasese, the new smelting operations will take place in Kasese because the smaller scale and availability of electricity allow that.

The ultimate production target is 5,000 tonnes daily, but initial production will start at 1,500 tonnes, then double in 2016.

Tibet Hima, which has committed $175 million to the project, is also in talks with the government to acquire Kasese Cobalt Company Ltd, a firm established in 1992 to recover cobalt metals from an unstable stockpile of a cobalt-rich sulphide concentrate, and see if one of the units could be converted to smelt copper and other metals.

KCCL, said to be the only cobalt bioleaching plant in the world, was meant to remove the threat of acid water runoff and contamination of Lake George and Queen Elizabeth National Park from the mining areas, but ceased production although the bacteria used in the process are still in store.

The refurbishment of the machinery and the rehabilitation of major roads linking various mining areas in Kilembe started in August last year.

Mr Kwatampora said the firm has also completed work on geological mapping, geochemical surveys and is currently working on geophysical surveys to ascertain the quality and quantity of minerals in the area.

The purpose of exploration is to expand the existing ore reserves to ensure that there is sustainability of the mining activity for the next 25 years, Mr Kwatampora said.

Located 370km west of Kampala on the foot of the Rwenzori mountains, the Kilembe mines were closed in 1982 following a drop in prices for copper in the global markets. Prices have however bounced back, averaging $7,000 per tonne, driven mainly by demand from China.

According to the Uganda Investment Authority, Kilembe had 4.17 million tonnes of reserves, with a copper content of 1.77 per cent, and opportunities to discover additional resources in the vicinity of the mine.
There are 5.5 million tonnes of cobalt in tailings (dumped material from previous mining) at an average grade 0.114 per cent cobalt.

According to the information given in the article Kilembe has a total 73809 tons of pure refined copper worth around $500 million and 6270 tons of pure cobalt worth at $193 million (at current price $30800).

Kilometres mines still has alot of potential to uplift uganda. The resources can generate huge sums of money, boost employment, boost infrastructure, and also new skills for workers
