Information @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Cobalt is a brittle, hard metal, resembling iron and nickel in appearance. It has a metallic permeability of about two thirds that of iron. Cobalt tends to exist as a mixture of two allotropes over a wide temperature range. The transformation is sluggish and accounts in part for the wide variation in reported data on physical properties of cobalt
  • The origin of the name Cobalt is thought to be from the German kobold for "evil spirits or goblins", who were superstitiously thought to cause trouble for miners, since the mineral contained arsenic which injured their health and the metallic ores did not yield metals when treated with the normal methods. The name could also be derived from the Greek kobalos for "mine". Cobalt was discovered in 1735 by the Swedish chemist Georg Brandt.
  • The process through which occurrences of cobalt rich ferromanganese crusts and polymetallic sulphides in the Area may be converted to commercially exploitable  deposits;  Technological issues associated with commercializing cobalt rich ferromanganese crusts and polymetallic sulphide deposits in the Area; Economic and financial issues associated with commercializing cobalt rich ferromanganese crusts and polymetallic sulphide deposits in the Area; The market outlook for the base and Precious metals to be found in these two potential ores;
  • The technology for producing the cobalt-60 isotope was developed by MDS Nordion and Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) almost 55 years ago using research reactors at the AECL Chalk River Laboratories.
  • Murrin Murrin is a world-class hydrometallurgical project, using sulphuric acid in high-temperature, high-pressure autoclave vessels to aggressively leach nickel and cobalt from low-grade lateritic (oxidised) ores. Hydrometallurgical processing offers significant environmental benefits compared to traditional pyrometallurgical processes, such as smelting, and much of the energy, heat and consumables used in the Murrin Murrin are recycled
  • Innovative technological solutions has enabled the Fort Saskatchewan refinery to address production-limiting factors, achieve incremental production gains and process record quantities of cobalt contained in feeds. Autoclaves conduct chemical reactions at elevated pressures in order to extract and recover metals from metal-bearing feed materials. The advantages of hydrometallurgical processes, in comparison with conventional pyrometallurgical smelting processes, are that it requires lower capital costs, does not emit sulphur dioxide, and substantially all metal and chemical agents are recovered for sale.
  • The ore from the mine will be transported by large trucks along unpaved mine roads to the proposed on-site mineral processing plant. The plant is proposed to be located as close as possible to the mine and in an area where there are not many people living. The mineral processing plant will include a crusher, a sulphuric acid plant and an acid leach plant. It will be able to produce at least 40,000 tonnes per year of copper and also recover cobalt. Alternative analyses will be done to determine whether the cobalt will be recovered as pure metal or as an intermediate product.
  • Cobalt prices have risen by around 250% and 350% from the recent cyclical lows and the prices were trading around $15,500/tonne ($7/lb) and $28/lb respectively. The seeds of the bull market . although at the time developments suggested that they would have the reverse effect.
  • World cobalt production continued to increased . Demand remained strong, but the free market cobalt price decreased to approximately $21.50 per pound by year end.
  • Market sentiment shifted from concern about availability to forecasts of potential oversupply as future production increased at a faster rate than demand.
