Glencore and Ivanhoe Mines, two mining giants, dominate the mining industry in the DRC, the top copper producer in Africa. Glencore owns two large-scale copper-cobalt mines in the DRC, and the organisation is known as one of the biggest copper producers in the world.
Namibia, Uganda, and Botswana also have notable deposits, and Namibia is rising as a hotspot for copper extraction in Africa.
Open-pit mining and underground mining are both used to extract copper ores and minerals. Being expensive, underground mining is usually only used for rich ores.
Industrial copper mining in Africa began in South Africa. It was started by the Palabora Mining Company which opened an open-pit copper mine in the country in the mid-20th century.
