A sign is seen at the Congolese state mining company Gecamines' copper operation at Kambove in the southern province of Katanga January 31, 2013. It is currently often operating at half of its 4,000 tonne per day nameplate capacity, as per the sign. The slogan reads, "Let's do it, in all safety". At its peak, Gecamines was almost a state within a state. It directly employed more than 30,000 people and ran schools, hospitals, flour mills and vast swathes of arable land, much of which it still maintains, further draining its stretched finances. Its roots are in the mining company set up at the turn of the last century by statesman Cecil Rhodes and Belgian King Leopold II, which later became Union Miniere du Haut Katanga, and then Gecamines.
