Carmine Mining Zambia Limited is purely a Zambian company which was registered in 2001, and has no external ownership ties.
The main focus of the company when it was registered was Mining Contracting and Mining Equipment Supply.
However, the company has grown and also includes General Mining and Underground Capital Development services.
Our mission at Carmine is to seek cost-effective solutions to mining problems, by working with management and operating officials to identify problems and opportunities for cost saving, and then seeking solutions that have been proven in other mining industries around the world.
Products And Services
Carmine Mining has two operational divisions; Mining and Contracting, and Mining Equipment Supply.
Mining And Contracting
We have extensive and specialised expertise in underground mining and open pit mining. Some of the solutions we have developed/improved upon include shotcreting/fibrecrete.
Our solutions have proved to save costs for our clients but not compromising the quality desired by the customer.
Mining Equipment Supply
Carmine currently owns,operates and maintains a fleet of over fifteen(15) underground mining units consisting of drill rigs, loaders, dump trucks and auxiliary vehicles. Carmine is an agent in Zambia for:
Ictus Grout Pumps
Carmine Mining is the Sole agent for Ictus. In addition to marketing the range of Ictus equipment, we also perform repair, service, and have conducted numerous training sessions for our customers on these products.
Evs Vent Ducting
This is a range of ventilation ducting products made in Canada. It is significantly better than all other flexible products on the market to the extent that it competes with steel ducting at a fraction of the price of steel ducting.
We offer a full training and support service to the extent that we place a full-time employee on the mine in order to conduct continuous training and ensure maximum utilization and benefit from the product.
A range of explosives products for specialist applications where controlled blasting is required in order to minimize risk of damage to nearby infrastructure. Full training is provided to users. Typical applications for these products are for slyping of existing excavations in which infrastructure such as pipes, electric cables and machinery have already been installed, and for secondary blasting in tips, crushers, and conveyor lines.
Sulzer Rock Drills
A new generation of jackhammer that is lighter and more powerful than existing jackhammers. It makes use of engineering plastics in combination with steel resulting in elimination of the requirement for lubrication, and significant reduction in maintenance costs as the wearing parts are all plastic.
Hydro Power Mining
Drill rigs and loaders that are powered by high pressure water rather than by compressed air or electro-hydraulic.
This power source gives operating performances that are marginally lower than electro-hydraulic, but that are significantly cheaper and easier to maintain.
Roof Support Products
Carmine Mining has manufacturing rights for a comprehensive range of roof support products with the raw materials supplied by Rock Engineering of South Africa. This includes hot-rolled threaded bars, friction stabilizers (split sets), tendon straps, cable anchors, mesh and steel arch sets, plus necessary accessories.
