Artisanal Mining in the middle of a city: The Kasulo story in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Kasulo is a township in the District of Kolwezi in the resource rich Katanga Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Kolwezi is home to the DRC’s biggest copper mining investment—the Chinese Sicomine, Suisse Glencore and the new mines company -- Africa Minerals (Nationalite).

Kasulo had never known mining activities until March 2014 when people discovered copper under their feet and houses.

At the same time, other gold resources that could provide important funding for the development of the Eastern Congo and the country at large, or create urgently needed jobs for Congolese, remain locked underground, unexploited.
