Junior Mining Forum

Junior Mining Forum

Looking at DRC and the region as a key Junior Mining Operators Hub, DRC Mining Week will offer a side event, track oriented around Finance & Investment, to allow a better understand and availability of funds and capital to penetrate this challenging but promising strategic market.

Junior Mining will be the future of mining in Africa as mid-tier producers are looking at new deposits of gold, silver, uranium or other precious metals. Because juniors mining companies are mostly venture capital firms, and mainly depend on external capital to secure their finance and undertake mining operations, we would like to secure a space for this specific audience in order to support the growth of junior mining and be an active partner along the full value chain.  

Looking at the key commodities in the DRC and the Copperbelt that will be at the heart of junior mining exploration projects, we will focus on case studies and strategic commodities outlook for gold, copper, cobalt, lithium 3T.
