Ethical Cobalt – Need of the Hour

The source of ethical cobalt has been a major concern across the battery pack value chain, with technology and mobility majors including Tesla, Google, Microsoft and Dell being sued for child cobalt mining casualties in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the largest cobalt producing nation contributing to almost 70% of the Cobalt supply globally as per the United States Geological Survey.

The cobalt supply chain has faced major disruptions due to frequent social unrest in the country. Additionally, a major share of Cobalt is sourced from artisanal mines raising critical questions on the mining practices and safety of the artisanal miners. With the burgeoning demand, the electric vehicle and the battery manufacturers are now seeking to source Cobalt from stable mining jurisdictions with efficient and ethical mining practices.

District Scale Exploration Play at Mt Gilmore

Corazon mining owns an 80% stake in the Mt Gilmore Co-Cu-Au Sulphide Project which includes one of Australia's highest-grade cobalt deposits, the Cobalt Ridge deposit. The exploration outcomes at Mt Gilmore underpin Corazon’s belief of hosting numerous, rare, cobalt-rich sulphide deposits similar to Cobalt Ridge.

The au courant audience must know that the intrusive porphyry system hosts major Copper and Gold mining operations including one of Australia’s largest gold mine, the Newcrest Mining’s (ASX:NCM) Cadia-Ridgeway gold operations.

The intrusive system coincides with the margin of a gold and copper geochemical anomaly and the surface projection of a high-value, Induced Polarisation (IP) geophysical anomaly. The coincident geophysical and geochemical anomalies at GBH indicate a substantial mineralised porphyry potential and are now priority targets at Mt Gilmore. Further, planning of a drilling campaign is already underway along with the permissions for the drilling program.
