About us



At Medcaw we recognise the significant role that lithium plays in the global transition to sustainable energy solutions. As the demand for clean energy continues to surge, lithium has become an indispensable element in the production of lithium-ion batteries, which power electric vehicles and store renewable energy.

Our primary objective is to identify and acquire prospective lithium mining projects across Africa, a continent rich in mineral resources and untapped potential. We believe that Africa presents a unique opportunity for lithium mining, with its abundant lithium deposits and favorable investment climate. By focusing on this region, we aim to become a key player in the lithium market, meeting the growing demand and contributing to the sustainable energy revolution.


Medcaw Investments PLC (“Medcaw”) is a cash shell listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange MCI:LON. Medcaw has recently entered into binding conditional agreement to acquire Abyssinian Metals Limited ("AML"), a company developing the Kenticha lithium project located in Oromia State, Southern Ethiopia.

The Kenticha project is a highly evolved, rare element, Lithium Caesium Tantalum (LCT) pegmatite project comparable to other major rare-element pegmatites such as Greenbushes, Tanco, Wodgina, Volta Grande and Altai No.3. Kenticha is a late stage development asset which AML intends to develop with the production of spodumene concentrate planned in stages, with near-term production through a Dense Medium Separation (DMS) modular plant.
