AVZ Minerals Ltd is a junior mineral exploration company focused on developing the Manono Project located in the south of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in central Africa. AVZ has a 60% interest in the Manono Project. The Manono Project is potentially one of the world’s largest lithium-rich LCT (lithium, caesium, tantalum) pegmatite deposits. The Manono pegmatite extends for a strike length of at least 13km and is more than 290m thick in places.
The Manono Project includes the historic Manono Mine, a pegmatite deposit mined for its tin content from 1919 to 1982. The Company also holds a 100% interest in the Manono Extension Project which surrounds the Manono Project. In addition, AVZ holds a 60% interest in the Katanga Regional Project which comprises seven exploration licences in the Kibaran Belt in southern DRC which are known to host lithium-bearing pegmatites.
