SMM4, January 1-African tin mining company AfriTin has suspended some activities at the Uis tin mining area in Namibia after Namibia ordered mining companies to suspend production for three weeks until April 16. However, because of the important economic position of the mining industry in the country, related activities can be carried out to a minimum, such as some key maintenance work.
As a result, open-pit operations will be suspended in the Uis mine, but during the blockade, African tin mines will continue to use existing stocks to provide raw materials for processing plants. It is reported that the company's existing inventory can maintain production for at least two months.
In addition, African tin mines plan to export the next batch of tin mines from the WalvisBay region in mid-April.
In February, the company announced it would revamp its processing plant, so it plans to close it for a while. Under the current circumstances, the timing and scope of plant closure are expected to be affected, but the renovation plan will still be implemented.
It is reported that the Uis tin mine contains 71.54 million tons of ore with a grade of 0.134%, 95539 tons of metal tin, 85% tantalum up to 6091 tons of tantalum and 450265 tons of lithium oxide with a grade of 0.63%.
