WHO WE ARE
At A Glance
The Kamoto Copper Company (KCC) is a world class, responsible mining business in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
We produce copper and are the world’s single largest producer of cobalt – commodities that are advancing everyday life by underpinning the energy and mobility transformation and enabling the transition to a low carbon economy.
Located in Kolwezi, in the province of Lualaba, our portfolio of assets includes two open pit mines (KOV and Mashamba East), one underground mine (KTO), the Kamoto concentrator, and the Luilu refinery. The business is jointly owned by Glencore (75%), Gécamines (20%) and SIMCO 5%).
Through the scale and nature of our business, we make a significant and positive contribution to our local communities, the province, country and broader society. Positive impacts range from production of the raw materials that drive social progress, to the payment of taxes and royalties to the DRC government, provision of employment and business opportunities.
