    There is an interesting item in the African Mining Magazine but too much to post.

    Should bring the "mountains of fear" sometimes expressed on HC back to molehills of minor concern.

    However the following statement while not ground breaking news should confirm where AVL is at. ------------

    Dikulushi Stage I was brought into production last October. The success of
    the project to date has encouraged Anvil to initiate plans for Stage II,
    which will involve the addition of a ball mill and a flotation circuit.
    Stage II will increase copper production from 13,000 tonnes per annum to
    19,000 tonnes per annum (an increase of 50%). As a result, concentrate
    grades will increase from the current 37.5% copper to around 58% copper.
    Also, smelting charges and concentrate transportation charges will drop by
    more than 30%. It is expected that Stage II will be commissioned at the end
    of the first quarter 2004.
