Tech-Metal Mining


Tech Metals for a Greener Future

We predominantly mine tech metals, including lithium, tin and tantalum, in the Erongo district of Namibia, Southern Africa.

Andrada Mining Lithium Producer
Powering the Future


Lithium (Li) is used in ceramics, glass, lubricants, metallurgical polymers, and pharmaceuticals, but demand is mainly driven by its use in lithium-ion batteries.
Its high electrochemical potential, low density and weight make it ideal for use in electric vehicle batteries and renewable energy storage. Lithium thus plays a critical role in powering the world's clean energy transition and is rapidly increasing in importance to the global economy.
As a potentially significant lithium mine in Africa, we are well-equipped to meet the growing tech-metal demand and play a key role in a low-carbon future.
Driving the Tech-Metal Revolution


Tin (Sn) plays a crucial role in technology production. Its high ductility, corrosion resistance, and low toxicity make it desirable for many applications, including the production of electronic devices, circuitry, semiconductors, soldering, lead-acid batteries, and even food packaging.
As the world moves towards a more sustainable future, the demand for tin continues to rise.
With refined production below the required levels, tin mine supply is a bottleneck in the market. This highlights the importance of investing in tin producers in Africa and beyond.

Andrada Mining Tantalum Producer
Empowering the Tech-Driven World


Tantalum (Ta₂O₅) is a prized metal used in high-tech devices, such as smartphones, laptops, and gaming consoles. Its corrosion resistance, high melting point, and ability to store and release electrical charges make tantalum critical in high-performance and high-temperature applications like aerospace.
Limited global tantalum production mainly originates from only a few regions and companies. With healthy growth forecasts, there is an increasing need to meet the demand for tantalum.
As one of the emerging tantalum producers in Southern Africa, we will play an important role in global supply in the near future.
