LANGHAM, Sask. — A cobalt plant proposed by Fortune Minerals near Langham northwest of Saskatoon has passed an environmental study. CEO Robin Goad says the review showed there wouldn’t be any impact on the water table. He also points out that there would be no asbestos in the company’s materials.
The plant, located about 600 kilometres (373 miles) from the U.S. border, would be the sole North American producer of refined cobalt. Miner Glencore is to provide feedstock. At its peak the refinery will produce 25,000 tonnes of battery-grade cobalt sulfate annually, which represent 5 per cent of the global market for refined cobalt, First Cobalt said.
