Huayou Cobalt has established copper and cobalt operations within the DRC and is listed on the Chinese stock exchange with a market capitalisation of circa US$8 billion.

The strategic cornerstone investment of $10 million by Huayou Cobalt through Huayou HK has now been completed.

Nzuri intends to use the proceeds for ongoing development and optimisation studies on its flagship Kalongwe Copper-Cobalt Project in the DRC.

The company will also investigate the prospect of using a solvent extraction-electrowinning process (SXEW) which has the potential to produce pure copper onto cathodes.

This would be a distinct advantage if the company could establish such a facility as it could provide the opportunity to produce high purity cathode on site.
