copper and cobalt mining and production

Cobalt Mining - Cobalt Institute

Cobalt Mining Cobalt is mined across the world and the vast majority is produced as a by-product from large scale copper and nickel mines. Cobalt is only extracted alone in Morocco and some Canadian arsenide ores. 98% of cobalt production is mined as a by-product Technologies include both underground and surface mining. Various nickel and []

Mapping of the Artisanal Copper-Cobalt Mining Sector

2019-10-9  Cobalt ore, along with copper, is hosted by the so-called Copperbelt in the south-eastern DRC where the ore is mainly extracted through large-scale industrial mining. However, a significant fraction of cobalt is also produced through artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) activities by a fluctuating number of more than 100,000 miners.

Cobalt: China Molybdnemum focus on Copper production

2020-9-3  Roskill’s Cobalt Mine Cost Model Service shows that Tenke’s percentage of net revenue attributed to cobalt has decreased from 44% in 2018 to 40% in 2019. As a result, CMOC optimised the mine plan according to a “high copper, low cobalt” focus, as shown by the y-o-y change in the production of the two metals. Under this scenario and ...

98% of cobalt produced is a by-product of either nickel or copper mining (~5-15% of mine revenues), somewhat an “accidental” metal as a result. Cobalt production is thus incentivised by firmer nickel or copper prices, rather than on its own merits. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) produces 71% of cobalt today.
