5th Annual First Quantum Minerals Golf Event

SOLWEZI, ZAMBIA - Connell Mining Products hosted their 5th annual First Quantum Minerals golf event on July 21.  The event brought together over 200 participants, including a full field of golfers, caddies and support staff who enjoyed a beautiful day on the greens. 

Connell and FQM share over a decade-long business relationship in the Copper Belt.  From the opening of the Kansanshi Mine in 2005, Connell has supported FQM across the entire mining process from Drill+Blast to Load+Haul and Processing.  With the expansion of the Kalumbila site, these ties only grow stronger.

Connell hosts their annual golf outing to celebrate this long-standing relationship with First Quantum Minerals. 

For the fifth consecutive year, consensus at the Kansanshi Golf Club was that Connell’s event was among the best—kudos from a club that hosts weekly tournaments.  While the play remained focused, the pairing of FQM and Connell again proved to be great fun for both the mining company and supplier alike.
