Cobalt & Copper

Mining exploration

In the Democratic Republic of Congo


Taruga Minerals Limited (Taruga or the Company) is a mineral exploration company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) with a focus on acquiring and developing highly prospective Cobalt, Copper and Lithium exploration projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Australia.

Taruga’s highly experienced management team led by Mr Mark Gasson as Executive Director and key advisor Mr Klaus Eckhof has provided the Company with exposure to high-grade Cobalt and Copper opportunities in the DRC, which have the Company well positioned to become a substantial player in the global Cobalt-Copper industry.

Taruga has recognised the opportunities associated with the rapidly expanding Battery Metal sector, particularly driven by the increasing demand for Electric Vehicles. The expanding market is increasing demand for Cobalt, which is driving a growing Cobalt supply deficit. Taruga, through its advanced Cobalt and Copper projects and the potential to develop new high-grade mines in the DRC, is strongly placed to take advantage of this opportunity.
