In February 2017 Cape Lambert formed a joint venture to develop Kipushi, the Kasombo Copper-Cobalt Projects and operate the Kipushi Processing Plant in the DRC.

Earlier this year, test work at the Kipushi project indicated that the recovery of copper and cobalt in the flotation process would be in the order of 55% to 65% for copper and 40% to 50% for cobalt.

Given the positive leaching results, a separate leaching plant is being considered alongside the flotation plant.

The leaching plant would aim to produce a high-grade copper and cobalt hydroxide product.
