A glorious new era of copper exploration is about to dawn in Angola as Ivanhoe boldly steps into action. The company aims to mobilize its team in early 2024, heralding the start of anticipated activities in the area.

β€œOur goal is to make Angola a globally significant producer of strategic minerals that our planet so desperately needs, for many generations to come,” expressed Ivanhoe founder and co-chairman Robert Friedland in a resounding statement.

Angola, a treasure trove of opportunity, awaits Ivanhoe’s pioneering exploration efforts. With limited prior exploration in the greenfield area granted to Ivanhoe, the potential for groundbreaking discoveries is rife. The terrain covered by Kalahari sand and Karoo volcanics poses an exhilarating challenge for the company, much like its work in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

With a commitment of $10 million for the initial exploration phase, Ivanhoe has its sights set on unlocking the immense mineral wealth hidden in Angola’s embrace. The expertise honed from its successes in the DRC will serve as the beacon guiding the company’s exploration team in this new endeavor.

Joining the likes of Anglo American (LON: AAL) and Rio Tinto (ASX: RIO), Ivanhoe’s foray into greenfield exploration activities in the region signifies a thrilling chapter in the pursuit of mineral riches.

With a track record of success at its Kamoa-Kakula complex, Ivanhoe’s entry into Angola ignites hope for the region’s potential emergence as a significant copper producer, mirroring the path traversed by the DRC. The company’s initiatives in the DRC, including the reopening of the historic Kipushi zinc mine and exploration at the Western Foreland project, demonstrate its unyielding commitment to resource development in the region.

South Africa is not left out of Ivanhoe’s grand scheme, as the company advances the construction of its Platreef project, a venture that promises to enrich the nation’s resource landscape with palladium, rhodium, nickel, platinum, copper, and gold.

The journey of copper from the Kamoa-Kakula mine to the Atlantic Ocean via the Lobito Corridor in Angola embodies the determined spirit and unwavering resolve of Ivanhoe, as it materializes the visions of resource utilization and commercial success.
