African Battery Metals PLC (LON:ABM) said samples have been taken from 248 termite mounds at its Kisinka copper-cobalt project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

It follows the restart of activities on April 12.

A field camp has also been set up for 14 people conducting or supporting field activities. ABM said termite mound sampling continued and further updates on progress are planned.

The company will use x-ray fluorescence testing of the samples, following which the results will be assessed, mapped and compared with available geophysical data.

Executive director Paul Johnson said: "After quite a gap in operational activity for the Company I am pleased to advise that operations are now underway at Kisinka where we are targeting copper-cobalt mineralisation in a highly prospective region.

“I am keen to ensure the market is fully informed as material developments occur in respect of Kisinka and also across our other projects and wider commercial activities."
