cobalt to produce a mixed nickel cobalt hydroxide intermediate product. The project's three deposits are estimated to contain sufficient reserves and resources to support a mine life of over 30 years. Ravensthorpe is currently undergoing 12 months of modification and construction including the re-building of the two crushing plants and
This transaction resulted in WPM and Cobalt 27 jointly adding approximately 54 million pounds of attributable cobalt reserve to their combined inventory. Demonstrating the economic viability of the cobalt resources at Bornite could become a game changer for the Company given our current 77 million pound inferred cobalt resource.
But cobalt often occurs with copper, and some mines in BC have produced cobalt in the past. Northwest Territories: Cobalt can also be found up north, as the NWT becomes a more interesting mineral destination for companies. 160km from Yellowknife is a gold-cobalt-bismuth-copper deposit being developed.

The Eagle East Mineral Resources and Reserves are reported above a fixed NSR cut-offs of US$142/t and US$160/t respectively. The NSR is calculated on a recovered payable basis taking in to account nickel, copper, cobalt, gold and PGM grades, metallurgical recoveries, prices and realization costs.
Reserves. The three ore bodies have a proven reserve of 125.3Mt at 0.73% nickel and 0.032% cobalt, and a probable reserve 137.9Mt at 0.57% nickel and 0.026% cobalt, giving a total of 263.3Mt at 0.65% Ni and 0.029% Co. The reserves ensured a project life of 21 years.
The annual output of the nickel from Ravensthorpe would be up to 220,000 tonnes per annum of mixed nickel and cobalt hydroxide product containing 50,000 tonnes of nickel and 1,400 tonnes of cobalt. The product would be shipped through Esperance Port to north Queensland, where it would be refined into high value nickel and cobalt products.
