Katanga Copper Crescent; Zaïre


Shallow-pit copper mine approximately 35 kilometres NNE from Lubumbashi.
Sediment hosted copper-cobalt deposit discovered in 1920.

Kinsevere comprises three main deposits, distributed over a ~3 km long, NW-SE trend, from NW to SE: Tshifufiamashi (also known as "Mashi"), Tshifufia (comprising Tshifufia North, Central and South, sometimes collectively referred to as "Central") and Kinsevere Hill/Kilongo (Kilongo extends north westward from Kinsevere Hill towards Tshifufia, and is sometimes referred to as "Kinsevere Hill Extended") (Booth et al., 2010).
