Mining makes up a significant part of the Zambian economy, closely followed by hydro energy. Copper is the mineral with the highest yield. Other important Zambian minerals are cobalt and gemstones. Zambian emeralds are higher sought after on the world market. Mining enterprises come in all shapes and sizes, from one-man-bands to large global corporations.
Mining machinery companies supply heavy-duty machinery or heavy-duty machinery parts. Some specialise in servicing of heavy-duty machinery, some hire out mine plant, and others supply specialised pumps.
Zambia is blessed with gemstones and has a thriving lapidary industry, related to the engraving, cutting, and polishing of stones and gems. Mining chemicals are supplied for use in this industry.
Mining processing and refining companies take the raw copper, cobalt or gemstones and produce copper sheets, cobalt pellets or cut stones respectively.
Different types of mining services are offerd to the industry, including drilling and exploration, earthmoving. mine inspection and safety, mining consulting, and mining engineering.
The Zambian energy sector is hugely important. Hydroelectric energy companies are the biggest, while others supply bioenergy and gas, and electrical components for the sector. Electrical engineers and energy consultants also provide essential services.
Petroleum oil marketing companies distribute fuel to filling stations all over the country. Power generation companies supply generators or batteries for power back up when ZESCO power fails. Solar and renewable energy suppliers offer a viable alternative to hydro energy - a high growth area in Zambia.
Finally, we have energy from wood coal and charcoal. This is very much a traditional form of energy that needs control to manage deforestation and pollution.
