African Battery Metals PLC (LON:ABM) said field operations at its Kisinka copper-cobalt project in the Democratic Republic of Congo are complete with the samples taken during the process being prepared for analysis.

In all 23 staff, including two geologists and five technicians, collected earth from 663 termite mounds that will be assessed using x-ray fluorescence spectrometry technology to determine copper and cobalt levels.

Director Paul Johnson said: "Our team coped well with difficult on-site logistics as grass levels remained high after late rains, and we recruited additional casual support staff to ensure timely completion of the field phase of activities.

“This initial programme has been carried out with speed and efficiency and bodes well for our ability to operate effectively in the DRC.  We look forward to reporting results as these become available."
