SMM7, March 8: six new cases of crown virus infection have been reported at Glencore's KCC copper mine in Congo's gold Lualaba province. None of the other workers tested showed signs of infection with the new crown virus, and they are being isolated at home under medical supervision.
Currently, a provincial testing team is tracking other close contacts.
The KCC copper mine did not indicate the impact on production, but it had little impact on production, according to people familiar with the matter.
KCC says epidemic prevention measures have been stepped up in the past three months.
Glencore, through Katanga Mining's stake in KCC75%, cut its 2020 cobalt production forecast to 26000 tons, compared with 29000 tons.
