MAXAM has been selected by NFCA Africa Mining Plc as its blasting solutions supplier for the underground copper mine that the company operates in Chambishi, Zambia.

The contract has been granted following a trial period in which several companies participated and that was finally awarded to the company, due to the performance of its high energy bulk explosive, RIOFLEX, in terms of advance rate, profile control and other downstream values.

With the signature of this contract, the company has consolidated its presence and business in the Southern African region, where it has been operating for more than 20 years, as well as in the underground segment. According to the company’s Africa Regional Director, Bernard Kaninda: “We are really pleased that NFCA has selected us as their partners in West OreBody site. At MAXAM we are committed to our customers’ success to the extent that we adapt our offering to their key performance areas, providing customized solutions to their specific needs.”

According to Zhanyan Li, NFCA deputy CEO, “We are happy to choose MAXAM as our partner after MAXAM demonstrated their capabilities and competencies with RIOFLEX technology during trial period in WOB. And I am looking forward to working together closely to achieve our challenging targets.”
