Bravura Holdings donates to Mhondoro community
BRAVURA Zimbabwe has donated goods and groceries worth thousands of dollars to Mhondoro villagers as part of its corporate social responsibility.
The mining firm last Sunday delivered food hampers made up of cooking oil, sugar, beans, flour and soap, among other goodies to thousands of people from more than 30 villages.
Speaking at the handover ceremony in Mhondoro, the company’s public sector liaison officer, Vickie Maponga said the company was happy to give back to the community.
Bravura expressed gratitude to the chief (Chivero) for the hospitality that they have always given the organization in return and making sure they work peacefully in his environment.
Addressing the same event, Chief Chivero, said the villagers were happy that the company was employing local youth in the area, adding that they were grateful for the Christmas presents.
“What they have done is a noble thing and a way of appeasing our spirit mediums in the area as well. They have brought smiles to the elderly, orphans and the less privileged,” the chief said
The mining consortium has also donated food hampers to Mashonaland West as well as ambulances and ventilators worth $500 000 to the Health ministry.
Bravura country manager Lionel Mhlanga said in 2020, the company raised US$1 billion to develop a new platinum mine at the Serui concession, where work to quantify the resource has already begun.
Meanwhile, the mining consortium says it has completed Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the resource confirmation at its site in Mhondoro Ngezi.
“The company has completed Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the resource confirmation and nearly 40 000 meters of core drilling is done,” Mhlanga said
Bravura Consortium is a multi-national mining house registered in the Republic of Dominica, and is domiciled in Ghana, with subsidiaries in Nigeria, DRC, Guinea and Zimbabwe.
The country is seeking to exploit its reserves of platinum which is primed to contribute at least US$3 billion under the US$12 billion mining industry
