The world's top 10 largest cobalt producers in 2019

2020-5-5  It is estimated that global mine cobalt production amounted to 140,000 tonnes, a 6% decline over 2018 year (148,000 tonnes). With 100,000 tonnes of cobalt produced in 2019, the Democratic Republic of the Congo was the world’s largest source of mined cobalt, supplying over 70% of world cobalt

Cobalt Statistics and Information USGS.gov

2021-3-17  Cobalt (Co) is a metal used in numerous diverse commercial, industrial, and military applications, many of which are strategic and critical. On a global basis, the leading use of cobalt is in rechargeable battery electrodes. Superalloys, which are used to make parts for gas turbine engines, are another major use for cobalt. Cobalt is also used to make airbags in

Production and Supply Cobalt Institute

Cobalt is widely scattered in the earth’s crust and is found in a variety of different ores in several countries. Cobalt is only extracted alone from the Moroccan and some Canadian arsenide ores. It is normally associated as a by-product of copper or nickel mining operations. Around 55% of the world cobalt
