DRC: Mining Opportunities


As the global demand for Sustainability & New Energy Vehicles (NEV) increases, cobalt remains vital for manufacturing NEV batteries and copper for all forms of electricity transmission.


The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the world’s largest producer of cobalt and one of the largest copper producers, has many political and social risks which could deter investors. However, the country has seen growing interest from many major miners and investors looking to capitalize on the expected sharp growth in demand for these metals.


In this online presentation, Afriforesight’s multidisciplinary team will give you the insight you need to assess the risks and opportunities of the DRC’s mining industry, covering the following key topics:

  • Economic & political overview

  • DRC’s mining industry, including

    • Important mining related infrastructure,

    • policy & regulations

  • Our outlook for the ‘Hot’ commodity industries, with analyses of major projects

    • Copper

    • Cobalt


The presentation is followed by a live Q&A panel discussion with Afriforesight presenters and key industry & country experts.
