The government is reviewing the chrome mining sector value addition strategy to increase earnings from the commodity.
The principal director responsible for technical services in the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development, Mr Charles Tahwa said government is consulting the miners on possible solutions to challenges they are facing.
“We are identifying the constraints because we need to ensure we return to transparency,” said Mr Tahwa.
The revised beneficiation strategy is critical in ensuring local producers can increase export receipts, according to the Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe acting general manager, Dr Nomsa Moyo.
“We are concerned that the minerals are not getting the real share and we hope that can be fully addressed,” she said.
The chrome mining sector revival will be achieved if operational constraints are solved, said Institute of Mining Research chairman, Mr Lyman Mlambo.
Mr Mlambo said; “The challenges are a key cause for concern and this is the right time to solve them in the near future”.
The chrome mining sector is being revived by the government to increase the overall contribution of the mining sector to yearly economic growth rates.
