Court orders Zambia Vedanta unit to pay state firm $139 million

LUSAKA (Reuters) - A London court has ordered Zambia Vedanta VED.L unit KCM to pay a state mining company $139 million (£102.6 million) in a claim related to the copper price, raising by $36 million the amount it was originally ordered to pay, the state company said on Tuesday.

The claim relates to outstanding payments under a 2013 copper price participation settlement agreement between Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) KCM and Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines Investments Holdings (ZCCM-IH).

Vedanta officials were not immediately available for comment.
