    JOHANNESBURG – Zambia is negotiating with Congo to secure contracts to refine the mineral rich country’s copper, Zambian President Mwanawasa said.
    Sapa reports that Mwanawasa disclosed Sunday that he has been in regular contact with Congo’s President Joseph Kabila over the possibility of refining copper concentrate in Zambian smelters in the copper mining towns of the Copperbelt province.

    Mwanawasa also said Zambia already possessed the infrastructure and capacity to refine copper from the Congo.

    Currently, copper concentrate from Congo is sent to South Africa to be refined.
