- African Battery Metals said it had restarted exploration activities at its Kisinka copper-cobalt project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The restarted followed a detailed review of historic exploration data and would adopt a staged approach to protect the company's working capital.

Initially, there would be a wide area exploration focussed on identifying areas of anomalous copper and cobalt mineralisation.

That would be followed by more drilling if appropriate drill targets presented themselves.

'After the challenges in late 2018 and the subsequent refinancing restoring the company's financial position, it is extremely positive to be focused back on the advancement of our business interests through exploration,' executive director Paul Johnson said.
