A GOLDEN AGE OF DISCOVERY IN AFRICA IS BEGINNING
Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)'s Untapped Potential
Ivanhoe Set to Commission world’s 2nd largest copper mine
“The copper grade at Kakula is ultra-high at 6.6% over the first five years of production, a grade that is an order of magnitude higher than the majority of the world’s other major copper mines”
- Robert Friedland, Ivanhoe Chairman & Founder
Barrick’s Kibali mine, one of the world’s largest gold mines:
Kibali “one of Barrick’s elite corps of Tier One mines… is a global leader in automation and continues to improve efficiency and productivity through ongoing technological innovation.”
- Mark Bristow, Barrick Gold CEO
First Democratic Transition of Power in 60 Years
For the first time since independence in 1960, there was a peaceful transfer of political power. In January 2019, the DRC voted in Felix Tshisekedi as President and current chair of the African Union. This sets the stage for the huge potential of the Congo to finally be realized.
A golden age of discovery in Africa is beginning. The mineral wealth of Africa is unmatched worldwide yet highly underexplored. High grades and large deposits are a signature of this eastern district of DRC.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo represents the final frontier for the discovery of world-class mineral properties, estimated to have over US$24 trillion in untapped mineral deposits making it one of the most mineral-rich countries in the world.
