Show Notes

The Democratic Republic of Congo has undergone a period of transformation over the last year with the introduction of a revised Mining Code whose legislation seeks to benefit all stakeholders in terms of social, environmental and economic upliftment.

But it has also increased taxes and placed a high royalty rate on speciality minerals including cobalt and coltan as determined by government.

Now, just over a year later, have the consequences of the new laws been beneficial or not?

Understanding the operating environment within the DRC does not have to be an onerous task and it doesn’t have to have a negative impact on your bottom line.
