African Battery Metals plc, the AIM listed battery metal exploration and development company, announced an update regarding exploration activities at the Company’s Kisinka Copper-Cobalt project in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Mr Paul Johnson, Executive Director of African Battery Metals commented “The immediate identification of a copper anomaly related to the Undifferentiated Roan horizons passing through the length of our license was a welcome result at this early stage of analysis of the results of our sampling programme. The potential significance of this large anomalous zone makes this a high priority prospect for the Company. Initial exploration in 2018 had failed to pick up significant signs of any mineralisation, and so this appears to be a positive change in fortunes.”

Latest Highlights:

XRF analysis has been carried out to identify anomalous levels of copper and cobalt on the 663 field samples, plus standards of known composition and blanks

Preliminary analysis has identified a 7 km long anomalous zone for copper which is spatially related to the Undifferentiated Roan horizons within the license area

Undifferentiated Roan represents Roan rocks of the Roan 1, Roan 2 and Roan 3 Subgroups and the Neoproterozoic Roan Group of central Africa is host to the world's largest and highest-grade sedimentary rock-hosted copper-cobalt deposits in the Copperbelts of Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo

Further analysis and review of the copper and cobalt results from sampling will continue over the next week and the Company will release detailed results soon after the conclusion of that work.
