Big picture - Why invest in Cobalt Blue Holdings Ltd

Cobalt Blue Holdings Ltd Snapshot

Cobalt Blue is a pure-play cobalt focussed energy solutions company, which was incorporated on 26 August 2016 for the express purpose of advancing the development of a cobalt mining operation in New South Wales, Australia.

Thackaringa – Mining History

Thackaringa was originally mined for rich silver lead zinc ores in the early 1880s, but the lure of the then newly discovered Broken Hill just 23 kilometres away was too strong, so that after the easy ore bodies were mined, the field closed down. In modern times Broken Hill has been downsized to a smaller mining centre with little mining activity taking place beyond the main line of lode of Broken Hill itself. Thackaringa exhibits many of the classical Broken Hill mineralisation styles and is again today, a significant exploration target.

Thackaringa Project

The Thackaringa Cobalt Project covers an area of 63km2 and is located in western New South Wales (23km west of Broken Hill).

Thackaringa is located approximately 1,000km and 500km from Sydney and Adelaide respectively by road and approximately 400km from the Spencer Gulf (Port Pirie) by rail. The project location is shown below.

Thackaringa Processing

Thackaringa Resource

The Thackaringa project is located within the Broken Hill Block of the Curnamona Province and is composed of Willyama Supergroup high grade regional metamorphic gneisses, schists and amphibolites. Within the project area the local geology is dominated by quartz-albite-biotite gneiss, quartz-albite gneiss, and amphibolite dykes. The extensive stratabound cobalt-pyrite mineralisation at each prospect (Pyrite Hill, Big Hill and Railway) is hosted by quartz-albite gneiss.
