General Central African Mining & Exploration Company Plc is a fast growing AIM listed African focussed emerging diversified producer, with multiple business lines across central and southern Africa. The Company's strategy will continue to be focused on the development of production and cash flow from its multi commodity asset base and by continuing to seek opportunities to enhance shareholder value through acquisition led growth, particularly where it can achieve a first mover advantage in an emerging market and invest at attractive valuations.

CAMEC's copper and cobalt operations are located in the DRC in concessions PE467 and PE469 (formerly known as C19 and C21), the Mukondo mountain concession, and concessions PE463 and PE468 (formerly known as C17 and C18). Working with its partners and local communities, the focus of CAMEC's copper and cobalt business is to utilise the Company's enhanced asset base to maximise shareholder value through the rapid growth of revenues and cash generation.

The three main production facilities, being the Luita SX/EW plant, the Kakanda concentrator and the Kambove sulphuric acid plant, are all contributing to production. CAMEC now has production capacity of 30,000 tonnes of copper cathode and 8,000 tonnes of cobalt concentrate metal contained, which dependant on demand can be raised to 100,000 tonnes and 12,000 tonnes respectively during 2010-11.

News September 18, 2009 - ENRC, which will offer 20p in cash for each Camec share, said that the deal would add copper to its portfolio, giving it access to Camec's copper/cobalt resources in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). According to the Camec website, the group has a production capacity of 30 000 t of copper cathode and 8 000 t of cobalt concentrate metal contained, which, dependent on demand, could be raised to between 100 000 t and 12 000 t respectively, during 2010/11. ENRC CEO Felix Vulis described Camec's assets as "attractive" and said that the company would fit well with ENRC's growth ambitions. "Camec offers all of our key requirements, including scale and scalable assets, low-cost and extensive growth opportunities," he said in a statement. The directors of Camec intend to "unanimously" recommend the offer to its shareholders. Camec CEO Andrew Groves said that the group viewed the offer to be "fair and reasonable". Besides the copper and cobalt projects in the DRC, Camec also has coal, platinum and bauxite projects. The group plans to start building a platinum mine in Zimbabwe this year. The Bokai mine is expected to produce 163 000 oz/y of platinum-group metals in concentrate over a 20-year life-of-mine. Production is likely to start by 2012.
