Fortunately, Zambia has managed to avoid much of the violence and instability of its neighbours in recent years. With rapid economic growth fuelled by its copper industry and Chinese investment, Zambia has worked hard to eliminate the threat of landmines left from regional conflicts of the 1960s and 1990s.
In 2009 Zambia became the third country in southern Africa to declare that all mined areas are now safe for normal human activity. Nonetheless, authorities note that while all known landmines have been cleared, explosive remnants of war may yet be found.

UXO clearance in Papua New Guinea for oil company
Oil company technical adviser
"[SafeLane Global] has provided UXO clearance services in Papua New Guinea for both our Phase 2 Geotechnical Site Investigation in August of 2010 and our Phase 3 Geotechnical Site Investigation. During the Phase 2 investigations, they provided clearance for 8 borehole locations and 7 test pit locations, as well as access paths to these locations. This Phase 2 work was performed directly as a subcontract to our Geotechnical Engineering Consultant. During the Phase 3 investigations, we engaged [SafeLane Global] directly to provide clearance of 5 borehole and 9 test pit locations and associated access routes. On both investigations, [SafeLane Global] provided knowledgeable and experienced personnel to perform its clearance work professionally and in a timely manner, allowing the geotechnical investigations to be completed without incident. We are very happy [SafeLane Global's] work and would not hesitate to utilize them again should the occasion arise."
