Abstract:

Using the Zambian legal framework and laid down international labour standards, this study has evaluated the working conditions of mineworkers in the Northwestern Province with a specific focus on Kansanshi Mining Plc. and Lumwana Mining Company. The aim of this study was to evaluate the work conditions environment in the mining sector in Solwezi in order elicit advocacy efforts and remedial action that should help ameliorate the situation if not completely eradicate the identified ills in the mining labour sector in Zambia.
