Fast tracked exploration in the DRC

Regal is focused on fast tracking the development of its key asset, the high grade copper/cobalt Kalongwe JV Project in the world class Katanga copper belt of the DRC.

Welcome To Regal Resources

Regal Resources Limited is an ASX listed (ASX:RER) minerals company focused on the identification, acquisition, development and operation of high grade copper and cobalt projects in the Katangan Copperbelt of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”).

The Company has acquired significant interest in a portfolio of permits that collectively cover some 350sq km of a highly prospective part of the western Katangan Copperbelt. At Kalongwe, the Company’s flagship project, a near surface oxide resource of 302,000t contained Cu at an average grade of 2.72% Cu that also includes 42,000t contained Co has been delineated.

Regal recently released the results of a Scoping Study for the Kalongwe Cu-Co Project. The study outcomes are highly positive and indicate the strong economic viability for developing a stand-alone, low CAPEX, open pit mining operation producing 25,000t of Cu per annum.

Regal is currently focused on fast tracking the development of the Kalongwe Project and on drill testing high priority exploration targets already identified on its other permits so as to build a substantial resource base.

Sustainable Development

Whilst there is no formal requirement under the DRC Mining Code for Regal Resources to carry out a corporate and social responsibility program during its exploration phase, Regal Resources is firmly committed to creating an operation that adheres to global best practices in these areas.

As such, the Company spent a considerable portion of 2013 designing a social program that not only promotes good relationships with the local communities now, as exploration is carried out, but also sustainable development through the entire life of its projects in the DRC and beyond.

The Company is in the process of setting up the “Regal Foundation” to deliver this program.
