Zambia restores full power supply to First Quantum mines

JOHANNESBURG, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Zambia has restored full electricity supply to the mines of First Quantum Minerals , the ministries of finance and energy said on Saturday, after reducing power to the mines earlier this week.

"The Government, through [power utility] ZESCO, will put in place measures to ensure continuous, stable and full supply of power to FQM Operated Mines, including importation of power from alternative suppliers," Energy Minister David Mabumba and Finance Minister Felix Mutati said in a joint statement.
