Throughout his 25 year career, Danny Callow has overseen some of the largest investments and operations in African mining. In 2007, he constructed the Mutanda Mine in the DRC which he grew to the most profitable mine in the Corporate Group, the largest copper mine in Africa and largest cobalt mine in the world at the time. He followed this up by constructing 5 new vertical shafts at a Zambian copper mine–the most shafts ever sunk in Africa in one go and delivered these within time and budget. This investment in shafts and a new concentrator will provide this 80-year-old operation with a new low-cost lease of life for the next 30 years.
From 2015 onwards, Mr. Callow has overseen the turnaround of a floundering copper/cobalt operation in Katanga Province in the DRC, overseeing the construction of the largest copper and cobalt mine in Africa and the most advanced processing plant in operation in Africa, on time and within budget. For the past 5 years, Danny has managed operations producing more than 400,000t of copper and 35,000t of cobalt in very challenging environments. He has been involved in the building of large scale mines for low capital and operating cost, overseeing more than $2 billion in delivered capital projects. Danny has built experienced expert and professional teams across Africa, in some of the toughest working environments and has access to these teams for future projects.
