We are not done with this one yet - The company has yet to cancel their project and is looking for a way to still make it happen:

"Even as the current copper project was cancelled, Mwembeshi Resources Ltd., a subsidiary of Zambezi Resources, and the company responsible for the Kangaluwi Copper Project, has indicated that there are several areas within the Lower Zambezi National Park that are suitable for mining copper, gold, cobalt or gemstones, sparking fears that eventually a proposition will pass and mining will occur in the park."
