The Sentinel copper operation is 100% owned by Kalumbila Minerals Limited (KML), a First Quantum subsidiary. Sentinel is approximately 150 kilometers west of the town of Solwezi in North-Western Province of Zambia.

In January 2010, First Quantum acquired 100% of Kiwara PLC (“Kiwara”). Kiwara’s main asset was a controlling interest in the Trident prospecting license area, which included the Kalumbila project copper deposit. The entire project was renamed the Trident project in 2010. The license area includes the Sentinel copper project (“Sentinel”).

In May 2012, the Company’s Board approved construction of Sentinel and development and construction commenced in the second half of 2012. Staged commissioning started in October 2014 and Sentinel was declared in commercial production on November 1, 2016.
