Copper mining in Zambia has been a major contributor to the country's economy since the 1960s. Copper mining is the backbone of the Zambian economy, accounting for over 80% of the country's export earnings and contributing over 10% to its Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Zambia is Africa's second-largest copper producer after the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the eighth-largest globally.

The major copper mines in Zambia are the Kansanshi mine in the north-western province, the Lumwana mine in the north-western province, and the Mopani mine in the copperbelt province. Other smaller copper mines include the Chibuluma mine, the Chambishi mine, and the Konkola copper mine.

The mining industry in Zambia has faced various challenges in recent years, including low copper prices, power shortages, and disputes between mining companies and the government over taxes and royalties. However, despite these challenges, the mining sector remains a significant contributor to the country's economy and continues to attract foreign investment.
