Kayelekera Location

The Kayelekera Mine is located in northern Malawi, southern Africa, 52km west (by road) of Karonga. Karonga is approximately 600km north of Lilongwe, Malawi’s capital city and is accessible by a national highway and by charter plane from the sealed runway in Karonga. 

The Government of Malawi owns 15% of Kayelekera, through a 15% holding in Paladin Africa, and supported the project through a Development Agreement that provides a stable fiscal environment for the first 10 years of the project. The Government of Malawi is committed to supporting and encouraging the private sector to assume a leading role in the economic development of projects in the mining sector. 

The Kayelekera Mine has made a substantial fiscal contribution to Malawi and opened up opportunities for employment and improvements to social infrastructure, particularly in northern Malawi.
