Konkola Copper Mines plans to restart smelter on June 22


LUSAKA, June 12 (Reuters) - Konkola Copper Mines (KCM), owned by Vedanta Resources , plans to restart its Nchanga smelter on June 22, the company said on Wednesday.

KCM said the Nchanga smelter, near Zambia's border with Democratic Republic of Congo, had been idle pending availability of concentrates.

Last month, Vedanta's CEO had said KCM's copper mines had not been producing copper.

A Lusaka court said on Tuesday a hearing had been provisionally set for June 20 to consider an application by Vedanta Resources to be represented by its own lawyers in proceedings to wind up its KCM business in Zambia, lawyers said.
