COBALT ORES AND CONCENTRATES

Used in superalloys for jet engines, chemicals (paint driers, catalysts, magnetic coatings, pigments, rechargeable batteries), magnets, and cemented carbides for cutting tools.

Principal cobalt producing countries include Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia, Canada, Cuba, Australia, and Russia. The United States uses about one-third of total world consumption.

Cobalt resources in the United States are low grade and production from these deposits is usually not economically feasible.
