Kamoa-Kakula, Democratic Republic of Congo – Ivanhoe Mines (TSX: IVN; OTCQX:IVPAF) is pleased to announce that the high-resolution site tour video, showcasing the talented team that is rapidly constructing the tier-one Kamoa-Kakula Copper Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), is now available for viewing.

“The site tour video allows everyone to meet members of the team that is building the ultra-high-grade Kakula Mine − soon to become the world’s next great copper mine – as well as members of the outstanding exploration team that is looking for the next Kakula,” said Mr. Friedland, Ivanhoe Mines’ Executive Co-Chairman. “The video highlights the project’s intense focus on producing the world’s ‘greenest’ copper; its priority on local employment and women’s leadership positions; and its emphasis on uplifting local communities through improved health and education, and sustainable farming initiatives − creating an unique opportunity for Ivanhoe to significantly differentiate itself within the mining industry.”
“We also are confident that the video will help dispel many of the myths about the DRC, most of which are perpetuated by people who have never set foot in the country,” Mr. Friedland concluded.
Translation of the video is underway and will soon be available in French and Mandarin.
