Lualaba Province (Jimbo la Lualaba, in Swahili) is one of the 21 provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo created in the 2015 repartitioning. Lualaba, Haut-Katanga, Haut-Lomami, and Tanganyika provinces are the result of the dismemberment of the former Katanga province.[2] Lualaba was formed from the Lualaba and Kolwezi districts. Kolwezi was a hybrid city/district which was separated from its two territories and the city proper became the capital of the new province. The 2020 population was estimated to be 3,183,300.[3]

Along with Haut-Katanga, Lualaba is in the Copperbelt of Central Africa. The DRC is only behind Chile, Peru, and the PRC in largest amount of copper produced globally.
