Exploring Copper Potential: An Overview of Central Copper Resources with CEO Luke Knight

View descriptionShare

In this episode, we chat with Luke Knight, CEO of Central Copper Resources, a copper exploration and development company with a significant, highly prospective landholding in the Central African copper belts with 2 assets in the DRC and the other in Zambia with all three projects having significant high-grade resource potential.

Luke has over 25 years of experience in the industry managing exploration and development projects in various countries in Africa and South America. More recently as a director at AMED funds, he focused on investments in the mineral/commodity space across Africa, responsible for portfolio monitoring before taking the helm at Central Copper.

We talk about the company, the 3 projects: West Congolian project, and Kayeye project in the DRC, and their Lunga project in Zambia and raising capital in the junior mining space. 


  • Central Copper is a copper exploration and development company with significant high-grade resource potential in Central Africa Copper Belts.
  • The company has three projects, two in the DRC and one in Zambia, with the flagship project being the West Congolian project in the DRC.
  • The West Congolian project has an existing high-grade copper deposit with the potential for using sorting mechanisms to produce direct shipping ore, reducing capital expenditure and fast-tracking production.
  • The company's second project, Kayeye, is located adjacent to Ivanhoe's Kamoa Kukula mine in the DRC and has shown geological continuity with Kamoa Kakula, indicating potential for future discoveries.
  • Central Copper is also exploring the Lunga project in Zambia, which has shown promising soil geochem anomalies and the potential for a near-surface oxide resource.


"We've got quite a lot of work planned there over the next 6 to 12 months." 

"We've got an existing exploitation right over our flagship deposit that was awarded in 2022." 

"We've got some very good soil geochem anomalies... and now it's time to drill." 

"We're looking at raising, while staying private now, a significant raising for a private exploration company."
