DRC extractive sector projects
Kinsevere – set to become the flagship of Anvil's DRC operations. Stage I began production in June 2007 with the Heavy Media Separation plant (HMS). Kinsevere produced 22,858 tonnes of copper in 2008.
Dikulushi – produced 11,047 tonnes of copper and almost 1.1 million ounces of silver in 2008 from its operation near Lake Mweru in Katanga. Due to high operating cash cost and low copper price environment, the Dikulushi mine was placed on Care and Maintenance in Q4 2008.
Mutoshi Stage I HMS - a tailings re-treatment operation based on coarse reject material from the former Mutoshi mine near Kolwezi. Mutoshi produced 9,617 tonnes of copper in 2008. The preparation of an engineering cost study for the construction of a Solvent Extraction and Electrowinning (SX-EW) processing facility at Mutoshi has been on care and maintenance since Q3 2008.
