More than a third of gold mines in Congo exposed to Ebola — report

A World Health Organization study shows that over 35% of the gold mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are at risk of being affected by the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the country, which is the world’s top cobalt producer and a significant copper and gold producer. The DRC generates more than 60% of the world’s cobalt, a key material for making the batteries that power electric cars.

Barrick’s Kibali and Vector Resources’ Adidi-Kanga gold mines are now threatened as the Ebola-infected areas grow, potentially jeopardizing output, says Verisk Maplecroft.
The number of people infected with the often fatal virus has now exceeded 1,000 cases, the World Health Organization confirmed, making it the second-worst outbreak in history, with daily rates on the rise as response workers continue to face violence.

Along with the obvious risks for those working in the country’s gold mines, companies are now facing delays in their exports, as part of Ebola prevention methods being implemented at border checkpoints, Indigo Ellis, Verisk Maplecroft’s lead DRC analyst warns.

This is slowly creeping up, with $11m cash on hand, and high potential iron ore project, worth watching!
