LUSAKA Aug 6 (Reuters) - Zambian power utility Zesco Ltd has restored full power to First Quantum Sentinel mine, the Canada-based company said on Thursday.

"Sentinel Mine has been given unlimited power, more than previously used to run the plant," the company said in a statement.

Energy minister Christopher Yaluma on Wednesday directed Zesco to restore full power immediately to mines owned by First Quantum Minerals. (Reporting by Chris Mfula; Editing by James Macharia)
