Today’s guest on the ValueTheMarkets podcast is Paul Johnson, Director of African Battery Metals. Since refinancing and Paul joining the board earlier this year, the explorer has been very busy reviewing and recommencing work at a number of projects. The company’s historic focus has been on projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Cameroon, and the Ivory Coast. In the interview, Paul discusses the company’s review of its assets, the termite mound sampling programme at Kisinka in the DRC, and the recommencement of exploration at the firm’s Copper-nickel asset in Cameroon.
African Battery has also recently announced positive results from soil samples taken at their Haneti project in Tanzania. Paul gives further details on this, going on to explain the option the company exercised with Katoro Gold to take a 25pc interest and the further earn-in options remaining available to African Battery. Finally, Paul discusses the recent move into Botswana, with an acquisition and earn-in agreement with Kalahari Key.
