An intercept of the cobalt shale was noted in the foot wall of hole OKRC001 at a down-hole depth of 230 m (513 ppm Co over 3 meters).Process mineralogical characterization of Kansanshi copper,,Copper mineralisation at Kansanshi occurs as both vein-hosted mineralisation, and to a lesser extent sediment-hosted mineralisation. Later breccia-hosted and supergene mineralisation have overprinted all previous mineralisation styles. Chalcopyrite is the main ore mineral for both vein-hosted and sediment-hosted mineralisation styles.
