Workers at Zimbabwe graphite mine strike over unpaid salaries.

Workers at the Zimbabwe German Graphite Mine (also known as the Lynx Mine) in Karoi District, Mashonaland West Province, have begun industrial action after their salaries have gone unpaid for 13  months. The action began on Friday 29 December, with workers downing tools and blocking trucks from collecting graphite from the mine compound. The miners also claim that the mine is now without electricity due to unpaid debts, leaving them without light and forcing them to take water from a mine tailing pond (pond used to store sediment-laden waters from mines; such waters typically contain a high proportion of fine silt and clay particles, which take time to settle out of the water, and may contain other pollutants, typically acids, either generated by the local geology or used in the mining process), but that managers at the mine have continued to collect their salaries.

Graphite is a form of naturally occurring carbon,  most commonly found in metamorphic rocks of sedimentary origin, though it can be made artificially. It is used as a solid lubricant, forms the 'lead' in modern pencils, and is used in batteries and the manufacturing of steel.

The Zimbabwe German Graphite Mine was founded in 1982 as a joint enterprise between the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation and Graphit Kropfmhül Gmbh of Germany. It was the only graphite mine in Africa until the Balama Graphite Mine in Cabo Delgado Province, northern Mozambique, opened in 2015. The combination of this new competition in the region with a global decline in graphite prices appears to have undermined the profitability of the Zimbabwe German Graphite Mine, resulting in its current financial crisis.

  1. I want to use this opportunity I have to say a big thanks to Dr Great for getting back my ex husband. I'm Linda Gibson from USA, after 7 years of marriage my husband left me for another woman I did whatever I could to get him back but all I did was in vain I was sad, but I didn't lose hope of getting him back because I had faith in God. So I search online on how to get my husband back, and I came across a post of Dr Great of how he helped a lady to get back her ex I felt I should give him a try, I contacted him and told him the pain I was going through, he told me what to do and I did it then he casted a love spell for me 48 hours later my husband called me and told me he is sorry for what he did and that he misses me very much later that day he came back home and he hugged me and that how our relationship became stronger. For the marvelous things Dr Great has done for me it will be unfair for me no to let the whole world know that such a powerful spell caster do live. If you want to get back your ex fast email Dr Great at infinitylovespell@gmail.com

  2. Hello friends i've been reluctant in purchasing this blank ATM card i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from ghost hackers & we both confirmed it really works, without delay i gave it a go. Ever since then I've been withdrawing $5000 daily from the card & the money has been in my own account. So glad i gave it a try at last & this card has really changed my life financially without getting caught, its real & truly works though its illegal but made me rich!! If you need this card from real hackers then here is their Email: (noraatm@gmail.com)

  4. Hello, I am Ledan Mini After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: {Supernaturalspell@yahoo.com } or whatsapp him {+2348124644470} ..
