LUSAKA, June 17 (Reuters) – Lumwana Mining Ltd. lost $1.8 million in revenue equivalent to 500 tonnes in copper production following a national power blackout in Zambia that affected its operations for 18 hours, its chief executive officer said.
“For us the loss in revenue is $1.8 million (equivalent to) 500 tonnes of copper,” Lumwana’s chief executive officer Harry Michael told Reuters on Wednesday by telephone from Solwezi, more than 700 km northwest of Lusaka.
