Cobalt Blue’s Mine to Battery Markets Strategy featured at the International Mining and Resources Congress (IMARC), Sydney

Cobalt Blue participated in this year’s International Mining and Resources Congress (IMARC) in Sydney (October 2023), which saw 8,500+ attendees from 100+ countries collaborating on trends in mining, investment, and innovation towards a sustainable future.

The most influential people in the mining industry from around the world came together in Sydney for IMARC this year - to share ideas, source inspiration, and meet face-to-face at Australia’s largest mining event.

Joe Kaderavek (Chief Executive Officer) and Dr Helen Degeling (Project Acquisition Manager) represented Cobalt Blue at the Congress and participated in panel discussions covering: the Search for Energy Transition Minerals in NSW; Tailings & Mine Waste Management; and How can Tailings Become an Emerging Market Opportunity?

Cobalt Blue’s Investor Relations/Commercial Manager, Joel Crane, was also in attendance to meet with investors and interested parties attending the Congress.

The responsible and sustainable supply of battery metals for the energy transition was a key topic on the agenda and Cobalt Blue representatives were able to present and discuss the pillars of Cobalt Blue’s ‘mine to battery markets strategy’, including:

  • The Broken Hill Cobalt Project: A mine which aims to become one of the largest cobalt operations in the world and one of the largest global producers outside of Africa.
  • Kwinana Cobalt Refinery: A refinery aiming to produce battery grade cobalt and nickel sulphate for export and to accelerate Australia’s battery-making capability.
  • Cobalt in Waste Streams Project: An innovative project where Cobalt Blue is at the forefront of processing technology that can extract critical minerals from pyrite in mine tailings.
