It would be a good thing to involve or consult local people before any mining operations went on - In my local area i am willing to pay goo$$$$ in development fund if the cons out weighs distroying the environment. Mining companies have not done much for us in the last 25yrs - The roads , the rural library , the schools , leisure centre , sports centre - rugby/tennis/bowling/golf/etc....we did all that for ourselves - zvima miner zviya zvaakuuya kuzodhakwa zvichiwetera pese pese.
