Black Mountain Operations to Resume


PF National Youth Chairman Stephen Kampyongo has announced that the government will seek to re-start operations at Black Mountain very soon. In addition he has assured citizens that the government will be seeking to work with competent mining and environmental experts to coordinate activities at the mining site.

Operations at the Mountain were suspended last month due to the death of 11 miners following an accident which saw the mountain cave in and bury them alive.

Mr. Kampyongo who is also Minister of Home Affairs said that the experts will be working closely with Chapamo group of companies, the company operating the black mountain.

Mr. Kampyongo said the experts will be carrying out special safety assessments every day before any mining activity is carried out to protect human life.
