Glencore to resume DRC cobalt exports

Neil Hume in London

Glencore has resumed shipments of cobalt from its giant Kamoto mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Swiss miner and commodity trader was forced to halt sales late last year after discovering traces of uranium in cobalt. Glencore was then told in January to stop working on the system after the DRC’s ministry of mines raised technical concerns.
