Kilimasimba Stone Quarry
|Location||20 km from Lubumbashi, DRC|
|Capacity||1200 MT per day|
The Kilimasimba hard rock stone quarry was commissioned on 1st November 2007. It had an installed capacity of 1200Tonnes per day. The quarry served to produce aggregates for use in construction within Shalina Resources and also for external sale. The main plant was sourced from South Africa and consisted of a jaw crusher, cone crushers, vibrating screens and a vertical shaft impact crusher (VSI). The plant was capable of crushing hard rock to a good shape and to a wide variety of sizes. The VSI also ensured the manufacture of a quality sand product.
The operation was owned 100% by Shalina Resources and employed approximately 70 people. Over 95% of the employees were local Congolese.
The Kilimasimba quarry was sold in 2012, due to reduced internal demand.
