African Battery Metals Plc, the AIM quoted African focused exploration company, is pleased to provide some photographs taken from the early part of its exploration programme at its recently acquired Kisinka cobalt-copper project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”). These photos along with others in the future will be posted to ABM’s website at: www.abmplc.com/s/40/gallery-drc.
Roger Murphy, CEO of ABM, commented:
“As previously announced, our early exploration has identified a number of features which are potentially prospective for cobalt-copper mineralisation and are being followed up by both further field work and by the auger programme which has commenced. These photos provide illustration of that work.
“We will keep the market updated as we progress and will add to the photo library as new pictures become available.”
