Sandfire's Botswana copper mine to start production in 2023 after gaining license

Sandfire Resources' Motheo copper mine in Botswana will come online in 2023, the mid-tier copper and gold miner said this week, after acquiring a mining license for the project.

The construction of the Motheo copper mine will accelerate in the coming months and should deliver 30,000 tonnes of copper and 1.2 million ounces of silver for the first 12-and-a-half years of mine life, the Canada-listed company said on Wednesday July 7.
