Kamoa Copper: Modern Mining Exemplified

The newly published independent Integrated Development Plan (2023 IDP) for the Kamoa Copper Mining Complex demonstrates the bright future and vast potential for the Democratic Republic of Congo and its people. The 2023 IDP outlines how Kamoa Copper, in partnership with local governments and communities, will become a world leader in the responsible supply of high-grade copper metal.

Copper is known as the king of “green metals”. Due to the global trend towards decarbonization, demand for copper will most likely increase in line with the shift towards clean energy and transportation technologies.

The move from a high carbon economy to a low carbon economy is effectively a shift to a “copper economy” because of the important role that this metal plays in clean energy technologies.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is uniquely positioned along the Central African Copperbelt, where substantial undeveloped gold, cobalt and high-grade copper deposits exist. Boasting some of the highest-grade copper reserves globally, the country will play a central role in the energy transition as a critical supplier of this “green metal”.
