Keep Up To Date

Notable

Notable mining companies in Idaho include Hecla Mining Company and Jervois Mining

Ranked

Ranked 8th jurisdiction globally by Fraser Institute

Mining

Mining has a direct economic impact in Idaho. Generates over $980M in mineral production annually.

History

Next to historical Blackbird mining camp, where Cobalt-Copper-Gold deposits were developed and mined between 1902 and 1968.1

Proximity

Benefits from being close to infrastructure. Less than one kilometer from powerlines.

Spread out

Covers portion of historically developed Haynes Satellite Deposit in historical Blackbird Mining Camp. Three adit entrances developed by Haynes Satellite Co, between 1917 and 1920.

Big Neighbors

Southeast of the Jervois Global Idaho Cobalt Operations. Will be one of the only producing primary cobalt asset in US, full scale production planned for early 2023.

Overview

Primary cobalt project located in Idaho Cobalt Belt. The Idaho Cobalt Belt is NW-SE trending zone of Co-Cu-As-Au-Ag +/-REE occurrences (approx. 55 km long and approximately 10 km wide).

Exploration Plan

Historic gold-copper underground workings cross. property boundary and correlate to cobalt mineralization.

USCM

Controls the majority of the historic underground development. Mapped and sampled.

Exploration

By Noranda Exploration Inc. in 1979 to 1981 further developed the property near the historical adits . Promising results from surface and underground drilling.

Noranda

In 1980 defined a two-kilometer trend of tourmaline bearing brecciated rocks on the property. Tourmaline bearing breccia related to cobalt mineralization at the historical workings.

Independent

NI 43-101 technical report with recommendations of: Phase 1: property wide Induced Polarity (IP) geophysical survey, additional rock sampling and mapping. Phase 2: drill testing targets that were defined by the previous work.

Cobalt Worldwide Reserves & Expected Demand

US controls 0.7% of total world-wide cobalt reserves yet is expected to account for a significant amount of demand for the unplanned new supply requirements needed to fuel the EV and technology industries.
