This is a story map about the discovery and mining of copper in Zambia and its inexorable influence on the country’s affairs. The country is so intertwined with copper that copper shows up in many of its symbols. Copper’s influence, however, reaches beyond mere symbolism—it exerts influence in other ways that impact Zambians in their daily lives. In most years, for example, copper accounts, more or less, for 80% of the country’s total exports. This translates directly into the volume and type of economic activity that citizens can pursue to make a living. The story starts from Zambia’s early history and runs through to the present.
