Life cycle assessment of cobalt extraction process

2019-8-1  Cobalt extraction routes can be in the form of open-pit mining, underground mining or a combination of open-pit and underground mining depending on ore grade, size and surface type. These two mining methods can be employed separately or combined depending on the body or deposit type, which may contain significant amounts of cobalt.

Responsible Mining of Cobalt Cobalt Institute

Responsible Mining of Cobalt The need for responsible mining practices is not new and has for many years been at the top of the agenda for many large-scale mining companies (LSM), and since the late 1990’s this has been approached collectively by the LSM in

Ores Containing Cobalt Cobalt Institute

Cobalt is almost always a by- or co-product of mining for other base metals, chiefly nickel and copper. Large quantities of cobalt also occur on the sea floor, contained within manganese nodules and cobalt-rich crusts, although they are not economically viable

Cobalt from Congo: how to source it better

2019-4-18  Artisanal small-scale mining (ASM) perceived as the Achilles heel of cobalt extraction was legalised in 1981 by president Mobutu, and has quickly developed in DRC over the 1990s, when the largest state-owned mining company collapsed and the Second Congo War broke.9 It is difficult to precisely quantify how many

Cobalt is produced mostly as a by-product of other major metal extraction processes mainly copper and nickel and in recent decades the nickel industry has been the major source of cobalt. Now however the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) copper-cobalt production is coming to the fore once again after a 20-year period of decline.

Production and Supply Cobalt Institute

Cobalt is widely scattered in the earth’s crust and is found in a variety of different ores in several countries. Cobalt is only extracted alone from the Moroccan and some Canadian arsenide ores. It is normally associated as a by-product of copper or nickel mining operations. Around 55% of the world cobalt
