Mines are closing for 6 months since Lack down

Since Lack down started on 21 March Village Main Reefs closed their two mineshafts and gold plant

On the 27 August 2020 Kanana Task team and Macua was involved with meetings between other stakeholders including MMC of Led and mine management. The meeting was held at the DMRE office

Our main issue as the community was to understand and to confirm that the mine will close forever or not close. So the VMR management confirmed that the mine will not closed. So we as the community we don’t want to experience the Pamodzi fiasco where people had to fight to stay alive. The meeting was fruitful and excellent news to hear that the mines are not closing
