GOVERNMENT has engaged a local company, Scout Aerial Africa (Pvt) Ltd, to undertake an aeromagnetic survey to explore the quantity of copper in Mashonaland West.

Addressing Tuesday’s post-Cabinet briefing, ICT, Postal and Courier Services Minister Jenfan Muswere – on behalf of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa – said results of the aeromagnetic study will produce a feasibility study and increase investor confidence in developing a copper mine.

“The nation is informed that Government has engaged Scout Aerial Africa (Pvt) Ltd, a local company, for an aeromagnetic survey, production of a drilling programme, drilling plans and a map indicating potential zones to mine within the Shackleton claims and Mhangura extension.

“Scout Aerial Africa (Pvt) Ltd will source funding required for this project and will recoup its investment from the investor who will be contracted later by Government to undertake mining operations,” he said.
