Our company has an extensive pedigree of successful exploration drilling projects. JVChantete is a well-positioned partner for your exploration needs. This is due to our extensive fleet of RC and diamond drilling rigs and our professional teams.

JVChantete, with our partners, can manage all aspects of mine development planning. We handle the feasibility, geoscience, engineering, civil construction, logistics, and raising of capital. All the work conducted meets international standards to ensure project execution.

Our blast hole drilling team forms a powerful performance division. They have experience in handling high-pressure environments and meeting client requirements. Efficient blast hole drilling is a catalyst for unlocking mining performance.


JVChantete runs many contracts with effective BCM mining rates. This helps our clients move their ore at a competitive price. The group has a fleet of over 300 machines. An excellent backup support system increases efficient usage and decreases downtime. The fleet and the team can execute many contracts at the same time, anywhere in the country.


Part of the JVChantete mining fleet includes crushing and screening machines and a dense medium separation (DMS) plant. We do efficient ore preparation. Thus, we can consult on the most lucrative processing methods. Thereafter we can construct the necessary infrastructure.


After the preparation of the ore, extraction can begin. JVChantete can deliver constructed heap leaching ponds and tailings dams. Our experienced teams oversee this stage to ensure environmental best practices.


Our in-house processing capabilities set us apart from any other contracting company in Zambia. To innovate is part of our commitment. This has led to the development and implementation of Fines Optimized Heap Leaching technology (FOHL). We developed the latest innovation in low to marginal grade heap leaching technology for both copper and cobalt. We did this in conjunction with BASF.
