LUSAKA/LONDON, May 31 - Zambia's decision to name a provisional liquidator to run Vedanta Resources' Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) business, one of the country's biggest employers, has rattled international miners concerned about rising resource nationalism. Vedanta, founded by Indian billionaire Anil Agarwal, is seeking international arbitration over Zambia's appointment of the provisional liquidator, it said in a statement on Friday. Ahead of a court hearing in Zambia expected on June 4, which provides Vedanta with another chance to fight back, here are some responses to the questions thrown up by the case.
Vedanta Resources is open to dialogue with the Zambian government but will defend its legal rights and opposes the appointment of a provisional liquidator at its Konkola Copper Mines business, the company's CEO said on Monday. A court hearing involving Vedanta and Zambia over the control of KCM was adjourned on Friday until June 4. The government is pressing for the liquidation of KCM, which it has accused of breaching its operating licence, in a case that has stoked broader concerns among international miners about a rise in resource nationalism.

Lawyers for Vedanta Resources told England's Supreme Court on Tuesday that a case raised against the mining company by nearly 2,000 Zambian villagers should be heard in Zambia not London. India-listed Vedanta (VDAN.NS), which delisted from London last year but maintains a legal base in Britain, is appealing a lower court ruling that a case in which villagers alleged their land was polluted by a Vedanta unit could be heard in England. The two-day hearing will be watched by other multinational companies with a base in London and facing legal challenges about their operations abroad from local residents.
Mining companies operating in Zambia have failed to show how higher taxes introduced this year will affect their profitability despite objecting to the new framework, a senior government official said on Thursday. The country, Africa's second-largest copper producer, increased its sliding scale for royalties of 4 to 6 percent by 1.5 percentage points from Jan. 1 and introduced a new 10 percent tax when the price of copper exceeds $7,500 per tonne. Zambia also plans to replace value-added tax with a sales tax by April to help bring down mounting public debt.
LUSAKA, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 20 (Reuters) - Zambia is pricing itself out of the global mining market with proposed tax increases, the head of the local mining body said on Thursday, a further warning to investors rattled by the government's efforts to squeeze more money from the sector. Africa's No.2 copper producer plans to introduce new mining duties, replace value-added tax (VAT) with a sales tax and increase royalties, from January, to help bring down mounting public debt. Mining accounts for more than 70 percent of Zambia's foreign exchange earnings and companies operating in the southern African nation include First Quantum, Glencore (Amsterdam: GX8.AS - news) and Vedanta Resources (Other OTC: VDNRF - news) .
LUSAKA, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 11 (Reuters) - Mining companies in Zambia may lay off more than 21,000 workers due to reduced capital expenditure over the next three years if the government introduces higher taxes in January, an industry body said on Tuesday. The Chamber of Mines said it met officials at the ministry of finance last week to present its views on the likely impact of the tax changes contained in the 2019 budget, which include capital expenditure cutbacks of more than $500 million. "Our members continue to review their operations and are having to consider scaling back substantially while reducing capital expenditure by over a half billion dollars over the next three years," chamber of mines spokesman Talent Ng'andwe said by email in response to questions by Reuters.
India's Vedanta Resources (VDNRF.PK) wants U.S. oilfield services companies to set up consortia to help develop the 41 blocks in India acquired this year by its Cairn Oil & Gas unit, the company's chairman said on Thursday.

* National Green Tribunal to give verdict on Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) . NEW DELHI, Nov 28 (Reuters) - An Indian court-appointed panel said on Wednesday that there were insufficient grounds to permanently close Vedanta Ltd's copper smelter and a government decision to shut it amounted to administrative overreach. The company was not given any notice or opportunity to explain its position, the panel said in its order.
Power supply to some mines in Africa's second-biggest copper producer was cut due to a technical fault, Zambian state power firm Zesco said on Friday.

Industry sources said Konkola Copper Mines(KCM) owned by Vedanta Resources shut down all its operations except its smelter and the Konkola Deep Mine during the blackout.

Shareholders in Vedanta Resources, the UK arm of Indian miner Vedanta, on Monday backed the delisting of the company from London, where the miner has faced protests and legal action.

On Monday, the cancellation of the listing was confirmed at a final London shareholders' meeting.
