How it's doing

Red Rock Resources PLC (LON:RRR) chairman Andrew Bell has told investors that the company is lined up for an active 2021.

In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the company said it expects to finish the first phase of its geophysical exploration programme this week at the copper-cobalt prospect at Kisinka. The contractor will then conduct a nearby job, whilst Red Rock analyses the findings, before returning for an induced polarisation survey. At the Kolwezi joint venture project work is also slated to resume. To date, the project has seen a significant copper-cobalt deposit delineated, the company noted. Additionally, two other exploration programmes are being planned.

In Kenya, meanwhile, a mineral resource estimate is being progressed. Operations are being put together presently in-country with camp and vehicle refurbishment completed, whilst key personnel recruitment is underway. A geoscientist and a community relations officer have been hired, along with a French-speaking geologist and data manager in London to work on the Kenyan and Congolese projects.

Down in Australia, the company has strengthened its team in Ballarat, Victoria, with the appointment of a community engagement officer. The company also noted that it continues technical preparation so that exploration can begin on the first licenses, as soon as they are granted.

What the boss says: Andrew Bell, chairman

“We are pleased with the progress on all fronts. In each jurisdiction, as we move from the regulatory issues associated with grant and contract registration to operational issues, the timing comes under our direct control and we can pick up the pace.”
