SITE VISITE DATE: Tuesday 18 June 2019

This year again, DRC Mining Week will offer the opportunity to a selected group of delegates to meet with Ivanhoe Mines and discover their operations in the region:

The Kamoa-Kakula Copper Project – a joint venture  between Ivanhoe Mines, 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 PDAC 2015 (Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada and by international mining consultant Wood Mackenzie). It is a very large, nearsurface, 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.

Tenke Fungurume Mining (TFM) in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Katanga Province is one of the world’s most exciting minerals development projects.

TFM is currently one of the country’s largest producers of copper and cobalt and continues to engage in drilling activities, exploration analyses and metallurgical testing to evaluate the potential of this highly prospective minerals district. Production volumes from the project are expected to expand significantly over time. A select group will have the opportunity to visit the site of one of the key players in the Congolese mining sector.

Delegates will depart at 6am sharp and drive to Fungurume to tour the mining and processing operations, and some of the company’s important community development projects in the area.
