The Katanga Regional Project comprises seven exploration licences within the mid-Proterozoic Kibaran Belt in the south of the Democratic Republic of Congo, known to host lithium-bearing pegmatites.
The licences are in three clusters within the Katanga province. The first cluster (of three licences) is about 100km south/southwest of the historical Manono mine surrounding the town of Mulongo; the second area is a single licence 50km east of Manono; and the third cluster of three licences are about 250km north/northeast of Manono. The licences comprise an area of about 1,172sq km.
The licences are relatively unexplored and are considered prospective for lithium, base metal and rare earths.
