Tackling Mining Exploration Challenges in DRC

Exploration

Mineral exploration is a crucial aspect of Communaute Miniere de Goma's business strategy and growth plan. The company aims to sustain, expand, and diversify its businesses by maintaining a pipeline of resources. To discover and assess new mineral resources that can replace or replenish current ore reserves being consumed by its rapidly growing businesses, Communaute Miniere de Goma employs the latest technologies. The Government of DR Congo approves Exploration Licenses for Communaute Miniere de Goma, and the company continues to apply for new Exploration Licenses to support its growth.

Exploration Goals

Communauté Minière de Goma is currently engaged in exploration activities aimed at improving its production. The company is focusing on specific areas near its existing operations to expand its exploration footprint. It is also submitting new exploration license applications for promising mineralized belts. Furthermore, the company is conducting a geological study of the areas covered by its licenses and comparing its mining sites with other exploration locations to enhance its understanding of available resources.

Exploration Technology

The Communauté Minière de Goma is investing significantly in modern exploration technology. This includes regional airborne surveys, geochemical surveys, and remote sensing data to assess existing and new deposits. The company is working to speed up exploration activities within its Exploration Licenses, where gold occurrences have already been identified. They are now shifting their focus from finding a target to the evaluation process.

GOLD NUGGETS

GOLD NUGGETS

One of the most effective ways to invest in gold is getting hold of gold nuggets and bars. It is always nice to have a gold bar or even a gold Nugget in hand when you know it has genuine money value which you can exchange for money.

DIAMONDS

DIAMONDS

Diamonds are among nature’s most precious and beautiful creations. Diamonds are the hardest material on earth: 58 times harder than anything else in nature.

TANTALUM

TANTALUM

Tantalum is used in a variety of alloys to add high strength, ductility and a high melting point. When drawn into a fine wire, it's used as a filament for evaporating metals such as aluminum. More than half of tantalum's use is for electrolytic capacitors and vacuum furnace parts.

COOPER

From electrical and thermal conductivity to its antimicrobial properties, copper is an extremely versatile metal with a long history of making the world work better.

TIN

TIN

Tin is used in coatings for steel containers, in solders for joining pipes or electrical/electronic circuits, in bearing alloys, in glass-making, and in a wide range of tin chemical applications.

OUR MINERALS

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) heavily depends on its mineral deposits for economic growth, with mining contributing to nearly 90% of its total exports. The country is abundant in minerals like copper, cobalt, zinc, cassiterite (which is the primary source of metallic tin), manganese, coal, silver, cadmium, germanium (a brittle element used as a semiconductor), gold, palladium (a metallic element used as a catalyst and in alloys), uranium, and platinum. Communauté Minière de Goma provides all of these minerals.

Gold holds a special significance for Communauté Minière de Goma because it was the first commodity ever mined by the company. In its early days, the company relied largely on gold production for its earnings. This set the stage for our future growth and helped us diversify our portfolio.

 

From our mines in the DRC, we extract and refine gold - the most famous of all precious metals. Gold is highly sought after throughout the world for both its investment qualities and industrial properties. Traditionally, gold has served three functions: as a monetary instrument, a financial asset, and a raw material primarily used in jewelry and decorative objects. Our gold is sourced directly from the artisan miners of the Congo.
