The mining fraternity is on the brink of rediscovering its old sparkle especially looking at the vast developments that have been witnessed lately. Among other developments is the imminent commissioning of the Yadah Connect’s marble cutting and polishing plant located on Plymouth Road in Southerton. The plant is being assembled and the commissioning is penciled for the end of February if all goes according to schedule. The plant will be getting material for processing from the Yadah Connect mines. Currently Yadah Connect has one operational marble mine in Concession and 27 marble claims dotted around the country, which are yet to be operationalised.

MMCZ officials had a chat with Basil Sadhindi and Tawanda Taruvinga from Yadah Connect and they affirmed that Yadah Connect had spent over US$5 million to date on the plant and by the time of commissioning the company would have spent close to US$10 million. Mr Sadhindi highlighted that the thrust for Yadah Connect was to earn foreign currency for the country and contribute significantly to the Beneficiation and Value Addition Cluster of the ZIMASSET and more importantly to the nation’s GDP. It was envisaged that the company would create employment for over 1,000 employees through the processing plant and mines by the end of 2018.

Yadah Connect was already getting enquiries from the market and if all goes to plan, the future seems bright for the mining sector.
