Zambia: SARW report claims host mining community not benefiting from First Quantum Mineral's subsidiary; company responds

Southern Africa Resource Watch (SARWATCH) recently launched a report titled ‘ Living in a Parallel Universe, First Quantum Mine versus communities in Zambia’. The report raises a number of serious allegations against First Quantum Mine’s Kansanshi mine operating in Solwezi, Zambia amongst them, the destruction of the environment by the activities of Kansanshi mine, displacement of families, and false corporate and social responsibility reports. First Quantum Mine has denied these allegations and claims SARWATCH report is flawed, unauthentic and grossly unfair.
