The Kamoa-Kakula Copper Project — a joint venture between Ivanhoe Mines and Zijin Mining Group Co., Ltd. and the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo — has been independently ranked as the world’s largest, undeveloped, high-grade copper discovery by international mining consultant Wood Mackenzie. It is a very large, near-surface, stratiform copper deposit with adjacent prospective exploration areas within the Central African Copperbelt, approximately 25 kilometres west of the town of Kolwezi and about 270 kilometres west of the provincial capital of Lubumbashi.

On December 13, 2016, Ivanhoe Mines announced results of a positive, independent, preliminary economic assessment (PEA) of initial options for the start-up of world-scale copper mining on the Kakula and Kamoa deposits in the D.R. Congo.
