China eyes cobalt

24 February 2011

Chinese companies are interested in cobalt deposits near the city, according to an Australian company that is about to test the size of its resource. Broken Hill Prospecting Ltd is set to embark on an extensive drilling program at its two cobalt deposits at Thackaringa. It will also test a third area at Thackaringa, 25km south-west of the city, as it moves toward opening a mine there.
