Zimbabwe to Re-Open Shabanie Mashava Asbestos Mine, Herald Says
The mines, which were closed at the height of Zimbabwe’s economic crisis in 2008 with the loss of 3,000 jobs, will be re- opened in phases, the Harare-based newspaper said.
Ownership of the mines is contested by Mutumwa Mawere, a Zimbabwean businessman, the Herald said. Mawere’s mining operation was placed under judicial management in 2004 before control was handed to ZMDC, it said.
