Tembo is about partnerships - with Lifezone Metals, with the Government of Tanzania, and with its people.
We are Tembo Nickel Corporation Limited ("Tembo Nickel") – a company built in partnership to take the Kabanga Nickel project into development. Our landmark partnership with the government and people of Tanzania has been structured to deliver shared value, based on equity and trust.
The Kabanga Nickel Project will be a mine-to-metal operation producing high-purity battery grade nickel, copper and cobalt refined metals in Tanzania.
We have adopted a hydrometallurgical processing technology that is more cost efficient than smelting and has a significantly lower environmental impact.
Tembo Nickel Corporation Limited (“Tembo Nickel”) is an operating company formed pursuant to a Framework Agreement signed on 19 January 2021.
