New geological map of the DRC.

The Investing in African Mining (Indaba) conference is considered the most important event in the African mining sector. It unites investors, mining companies, governments, etc. from around the world.

This year, the DR Congo Ministry of Mines presented three new maps of the DRC at a 1/2.500.000 scale:

  • a geological map
  • a mineral resources map
  • a metallogenic map.

These maps were produced by RMCA geologists, in collaboration with the DRC Ministry of Mines, in the framework of the PROMINES-project. PROMINES is co-funded by the World Bank and the British agency DFID. The project’s objectives are to improve governance in the mineral sector and increase its contribution to economic growth and sustainable development at the national, provincial and local levels.
