A Zn-Pb-Cu mine featuring a suite of Zn-Pb-Cu-Fe sulfides with accessory Ga, Ge, Mo, W & V mineralization in dolomite and schist dolomite series of the Kundelunguian. Located just outside of the southern portion of the Katanga (Shaba) Cu zone/belt, 32 km SW of Lubumbashi. At depth, the deposit extends into Zambia.

Note: Rutile coming from Kinyanfumbe, Zambia, has been erroneously labeled as coming from here.

Renierite (TL)
Formula: (Cu1+,Zn)11Fe4(Ge4+,As5+)2S16
Description: Renierite was found in two germanium-rich zones at Kipushi. The first at a depth between -275 and -400 meters and a second one beween the levels -725 and -775. Deeper or between these levels, the mineral was very rare.
