Katanga Mining Limited operates a large-scale copper-cobalt project with substantial high-grade mineral reserves and integrated metallurgical operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Our single-site operation, which comprises brownfield assets and new facilities under construction, will have one of the lowest unit production costs in the world, net of by-product credits.

The January 2008 merger with Nikanor PLC, whose adjacent concessions had previously been part of the same mine complex, has consolidated our leadership position in the region and is expected to generate significant operating and financial synergies.

Katanga holds a 75% stake in two joint ventures with Gécamines, a state-owned mining company in the DRC.

We are committed to the socio-economic development of the DRC and the communities surrounding our operations, and place sustainable development as integral to the way we do business.

Katanga is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol KAT.

Our logo

Our logo depicts the Katanga Cross, a form of currency used in the 19th and early 20th centuries in the Katanga region of what is now the DRC. The X-shaped ingots were cast by pouring molten copper into molds and typically measured eight inches across and weighed two pounds.

The green color of the logo signifies the mineral malachite, whose presence in nearly all oxidized copper deposits serves as a prospecting guide for copper.
