eCobalt Solutions has reported positive economics from a feasibility study of its Idaho Cobalt Project (ICP), which includes an underground mine and mill near the town of Salmon in east-central Idaho and a hydrometallurgical cobalt refining operation on a railhead in the town of Blackfoot to the southeast. A combined cobalt-copper-gold concentrate would be produced at the mine site and processed at the Blackfoot plant. The vertically integrated project would produce cobalt chemicals for the rechargeable batteries market, as well as byproduct copper concentrate, copper sulphate, magnesium sulphate and gold.
