Kogi aims to become an African iron ore and steel producer through the development of Agbaja, capitalising on the substantial domestic demand for steel products in Nigeria.

The company’s land position covers a large part of the Agbaja Plateau which hosts an extensive, shallow and flat-lying channel iron ore deposit with an indicated and inferred mineral resource of 586 million tonnes.

This JORC-compliant resource has an in-situ iron grade of 41.3% and covers about 20% of the prospective plateau within the mining licence areas.
