Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)

A familiar jurisdiction with the market, mining is a critical sector for the DRC economy: as one of the largest exporters of copper globally, and surpassed only by Chile, the country hosts some of the world’s largest deposits of diamonds, gold, copper and cobalt.

DRC overview


A world class mining jurisdiction governed by a strong mining code. Copper has historically been Zambia’s largest export and continues to be to this day. The country is home to the ‘Copper Belt’ deposits which are mined by some of the world’s most prolific mining institutions.

The copper market

Copper’s conductive properties, malleability, tensile strength, slow corrosive process and durability all make the base metal a critical resource, and especially dominant in the global energy transition away from a reliance on hydrocarbons toward renewable energies and electric vehicles, equipment and infrastructure. Over the past year, the price of copper has seen a dramatic escalation, with some analysts anticipating the start of a decades-long commodities super cycle.

The DRC and Zambia have long been famed for their extensive, high-grade copper deposits, the export of which has defined the countries’ economy.
