Establishment of Copper and Graphite Mining Subsidiary in Kenya


Marula Mining (AQSE: MARU), an African focused mining and development company, is pleased to announce the establishment of a wholly owned Kenya operating subsidiary company; Muchai Mining Kenya Limited (“Muchai Mining Kenya”).


Muchai Mining Kenya has been established to focus on securing both near-term and advanced copper and graphite mining opportunities in Kenya.




  • Muchai Mining Kenya is a 100% wholly owned subsidiary of Marula and will be the Company’s operating entity in Kenya
  • The decision to establish Muchai Mining Kenya follows extensive due diligence on several copper and graphite opportunities in Kenya which the Company anticipates concluding in due course
  • The establishment of Muchai Mining Kenya reinforces the Company’s presence in East Africa and follows the local registration of Marula Mining plc in Kenya in September 2022 as well as the establishment of the Company’s head office in Nairobi
  • The Board believes that through this new operating subsidiary, the Company will be able to play a role in Kenya’s mining and metals sector and further advance its strategy to identify, develop and advance new, prospective battery metals opportunities
  • The incorporation of Muchai Mining Kenya follows the earlier establishment of the Company’s 80% owned Zimbabwean operating subsidiary, Muchai Mining (Pvt) Limited, to secure similarly advanced battery metals projects in the lithium and copper sectors


Jason Brewer, Marula Mining PLC CEO, said:

"The decision to establish Muchai Mining Kenya follows a period of significant in-country work and comes after careful consideration of various opportunities in the region.

“Given that Nairobi is the headquarters for the Company, the establishment of Muchai Mining Kenya has been long awaited event. We are excited by the potential that Kenya offers and we are pleased that we can now move our planned initiatives in the country forward.

“I have been impressed with how the Kenyan government is emphasising the importance of its mining sector, for the future growth of the Kenyan economy. As a company we have been actively engaged with a number of industry groups in the country and are keen to play a role in establishing Kenya’s mining sector as a contributor to economic growth and employment. Marula's experience and expertise gives us no doubt that Muchai Mining Kenya is well positioned for success.

“As we continue to identify and pursue opportunities that can deliver value to our shareholders, we believe Kenya will be another key country of our operating and development activities and we look forward to working with all key stakeholders to achieve this.”

The Directors of Marula are responsible for the contents of this announcement.
