African Metals Corporation was a Canadian mining company that operated in Zambia. The company was primarily focused on the exploration and development of copper and cobalt deposits in the country.
In 2013, African Metals Corporation acquired the Luisha South project, which included the Kalumines and Musoshi deposits. The company also owned the Mkushi copper project, which was located in central Zambia.
However, in 2016, African Metals Corporation filed for bankruptcy and its assets were sold to a Chinese company, Jinchuan Group International Resources Co. Ltd. The sale included the Luisha South project and the Mkushi copper project.
The bankruptcy of African Metals Corporation was attributed to a decline in copper prices and the company's inability to secure financing to continue its operations.
