    BACKGROUND
    ----------
    

The Kipoi Project covers an area of 55 sq kms and is located 75km north-north-west of the city of Lubumbashi in the Katangan Province of the DRC. The Project contains a 12km sequence of mineralised Roan sediments that host at least five known deposits: Kipoi Central, Kipoi North, Kileba, Judeira and Kaminafitwe. The Company has reported JORC standard resources at three of the deposits. The principle deposit is Kipoi Central which contains a zone of high grade copper mineralisation within a much larger lower grade global resource. The Company proposes a staged development at the Kipoi Project. The high grade zone of mineralisation at Kipoi Central is proposed to be exploited during the Stage 1 development. During the three year life of Stage 1 a total of 900,000tpa of 7% Cu is planned to be processed through a Heavy Media Separation plant to produce the equivalent of 35,000tpa of Copper.
