African Battery Metals PLC (LON:ABM) has announced that it has restarted exploration activities at its Kisinka Copper-Cobalt project in the Democratic Republic of Congo with immediate effect following a detailed review of historic exploration.

The AIM-listed battery metal exploration and development company said, in order to protect and preserve its working capital, the exploration programme will adopt a staged approach with initial wide-area exploration focused on identifying areas of anomalous copper and cobalt mineralisation.

This will be followed by follow up drilling if appropriate drill targets present themselves.
