Information about the Project Sites in Zimbabwe

The Kadoma-Chakari area lies within one of the largest gold belts (greenstone belts) of Zimbabwe and has the highest density of small scale gold miners, millers and panners of all the country’s gold belts. Geographically, the area occurs about 150 km south-west of Harare along the main Harare-Bulawayo highway and is located within the Zambezi Basin (Fig. 1 and 2). Access into the mining areas from Kadoma City is very good along paved all-weather roads and good dry season roads. The Zambezi Basin and its water resources are shared by eight of the fourteen Southern African Development Community (SADC) states.
