Kamativi Mine, Dete, Hwange District

Matebeleland North, Zimbabwe

Kamativi Tine Mines, a wholly owned subsidiary of Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation, closed operations in 1994 after 58 years of operation.

Closure of the mine was caused by the fall of the price of tin in 1985. The mine produced tin and other by-products including tantalite niobium and lithium minerals. Kamativi mine is having renewed interest because of the rise in tin prices and the large suite of minerals associated with tin.
ZMDC intends to resuscitate Kamativi in the near future.
