Tiger Resources has commissioned a study by independent consultant Mintrex Pty Ltd. to investigate the economic viability of producing cobalt from the copper ores currently being mined and processed at its Kipoi project 75 km northwest of the city of Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The project’s copper resource materials currently host 40,400 mt of measured and indicated and 5,600 mt of inferred cobalt across the Kipoi Central, Kipoi North, Kileba, and Judeira deposits. The cobalt grade in the Kipoi Central measured resource is 0.14% cobalt. Cobalt grades in the other deposits range from 0.03% to 0.07%.
