The Broken Hill Cobalt Project Resource
The Broken Hill Cobalt Project comprises three large tonnage cobalt deposits (Pyrite Hill, Big Hill & Railway) hosted by an extensive sequence of pyritic-quartz-albite gneiss of the Himalaya Formation. The deposits were the subject of an updated Mineral Resource estimate released to the market on 4 April 2019 (“Significant Thackaringa Resource Upgrade”) and comprising 111 Mt at 889 ppm cobalt-equivalent (CoEq) (715 ppm Co and 7.8% S) for 79,500 tonnes contained cobalt (at a 400 ppm CoEq cut-off) (refer to Table 1 below for a complete summary by deposit and Mineral Resource classification).
