Copper production in Zambia, Africa’s No.2 producer of the metal, is expected to rise to 850 000 t in 2017 from 770 597 t last year, the nation’s vice president said on Thursday. “Copper production is poised to continue increasing owing to the expansion projects at existing mines and greenfield projects that are ongoing,” Vice-President Inonge Wina said at a mining and energy conference.
