HAND PICKERS BANNED FROM BLACK MOUNTAIN

Government has now permanently banned chrome pickers from operating at the Black Mountain in Kitwe after identifying four sites where the mineral ore slag will be off loaded for them.

This comes barely 48 hours after the hand-pickers were suspended from working at the copper ore-rich slag dump for running amok in protest against the two hours that was allocated to them at the site.

The unruly youths on Tuesday threw stones at moving vehicles and disrupted operations at the mining site and traffic on the Kitwe-Ndola road.

However, intervention by police officers prevented the situation from escalating as they sealed off the site.
