In a recent InvestorNews interview, host Brandon Colwell spoke with Russell Fryer, the Executive Director of Critical Metals PLC (LSE: CRTM), about the recent ‘transformational’ developments in their critical mineral operations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”). In addition to signing an offtake agreement for a minimum of 20,000 tons of copper oxide ore, Russell said that Critical Minerals has also secured a hydrometallurgical plant for producing a finished product.
Located less than 100 kilometers from the Molulu project, Russell said that the hydrometallurgical plant has the capacity to produce substantial amounts of copper cathode and cobalt hydroxide. With plans to grow production at the plant, Russell discusses how they are positioned to be a mid-tier player in the metals and mining industry.
Fryer emphasized that controlling downstream production and finished goods is key to competing in the global market. With the new processing capabilities, the company is well-positioned to serve the growing demand for copper cathode and cobalt hydroxide, particularly in the electric vehicle market.
Looking ahead, Critical Metals aims to expand its presence in the copper, cobalt, tantalum, tungsten, and niobium sectors. The company has been actively conducting due diligence on several mines in various countries, with the goal of operating five mines in five different jurisdictions.
