Location of the Kolwesi Musonoi Project
The Kolwezi Project is situated within the Katanga region, which is inside the DRC portion of the Copperbelt. The project is accessed by unpaved road from Kolwezi, Kolwezi is situated approximately 320 kilometres northwest of Lubumbashi, which is the capital of the Katanga province in the DRC.
 
History of the Kolwesi Musonoi Project
Tailings located at the Kolwezi Project originated from a mineral concentrator at a mine owned by the DRC’s stateowned mining company, La Générale des Carrières et des Mines (“Gécamines”), which commenced operations in 1952. The concentrator processed ore from the western open-pit copper mines of the Katanga copper belt area of the DRC into copper concentrate which was then shipped from Kolwezi for smelting. The nature of the oxide ore meant that copper and cobalt recovery in the concentrate was incomplete. The resulting tailings therefore contained significant metal values.
