KoBold Metals Company, renowned for its pioneering approach to battery metal exploration, will spearhead exploration efforts at Dumbwa, leveraging its cutting-edge technology and expertise in the field.

With the backing of investors such as Breakthrough Energy Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz, KoBold aims to accelerate the discovery of critical minerals, particularly in regions rich in mineral resources like Zambia.
