Zambia is among the main copper producers in the world and in Africa, ranking 7th in the World and 2nd in Africa after the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The country produced 837,996 tonnes in 2020, compared to 776,430 tonnes produced in 2019.

However, the production fell to 800,696 tonnes in 2021.

Zambia’s copper mines are concentrated in the Copperbelt Province, though the past decade has witnessed the establishment of mines in other parts of the country such as the North-Western Province.
