The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is home to a variety of key metals and minerals, including cobalt, lithium and the 3T’s (tin, tungsten and tantalum), all of which are forecast to see rapid demand increases as the battery metals market grows. Not only are these minerals abundant in the DRC, but are already being mined or are in the process of development.
Join Mining Review Africa and DRC Mining Week as we unpack the extent of battery metal mineralisation in the DRC, how the country is positioned to feed increasing demand over the coming years, why you should consider investing in the development of these metals and minerals in the DRC and who is already benefiting from building their businesses around these metals and minerals in the Central African territory.
Key discussion points will include:
- Unpacking the extent of the DRC’s mineralisation of battery metals and minerals
- Outlining the growing demand of battery metals and minerals and how the DRC can meet the demand
- Understanding the benefits of developing these metals in the DRC, and not another region
- Input from key role players in the region – lessons learned and long-term strategies
- Responsible sourcing of these key metals and minerals – how this may impact on demand from the DRC
