A copper property at 948 meters deep (pump chamber and sumps). Ore averages 1.45% to 1.55% Cu (1983-84). Owned by the ZCCM, Kalulushi Div.

The Chambishi sediment-hosted copper-cobalt deposit is hosted by the Lower Roan Group in the Zambian Copper Belt and is located on the SW margin of the Kafue Anticline, approximately halfway between Nkana and Nchanga in northern Zambia.
