    Zvishavane – Light simmered at the end of the tunnel for further major mining investments in Zvishavane when geologists and other experts from Dangote Industries Limited of Nigeria visited Zvishavane last week to assess the possibility of starting cement production.
    The plan is to exploit limestone claims in Mberengwa.
     Zvishavane Ngezi Member of Parliament John holder confirmed the visit to The Mirror in a telephone interview and said that the company want to set up a cement factory.
    "Yes l can confirm that the geologists from Dangote were here last week and they are interested on Shabani-Mashaba mine limestone deposits. They want to open a cement factory so they were taking limestone samples for analysis.
    "I am however, not at liberty to disclose more information to the Press. I have told you what I think is important to tell you at the moment," said Holder
    However this visit is one of quite a number of visits that Shabani-Mashaba mine has received so for with many investors coming but never returning.
    About two weeks ago a team from Russia was reportedly at the giant Shabani- Mashava Mine which shut down in 2004 thereby leaving 5 000 workers stranded.
    Last December some investors from China also visited the mine.
    Some sources said the revival of the company bleak because of the unresolved issues between Shabani and Mashava Mines owner, Mutumwa Mawere who is now living in exile.
    "Mawere still holds company mining certificates and investors are scared about that," said Holder. Business
