MUFULIRA, ZAMBIA- JULY 7: Batches of copper sheets are stored in a warehouse and wait to be loaded on trucks on July 7, 2016 at Mopani mines, Mufilira, Zambia.  The copper is trucked to ports such as Dar es Salaam, Tanzania & Durban, South Africa. Glencore, an Anglo-Swiss multinational commodity trading and mining company, owns about 73 % of Mopani mines, which produces copper and some cobalt. The mine employs about 15,000 people. Many people in the area are dependent of the mines and its subcontractors for work. (Photo by Per-Anders Pettersson)
