Following a recent commercial visit in November to Korea and Japan, potential partners have highlighted the desire to source cobalt sulphate samples for in-house purity testing. In order to produce a sufficient sample quantity for evaluation by Japanese, Korean and Chinese entities, COB is seeking funds to:
- increase the scale of the Pre-Feasibility study testwork program to produce the volume of cobalt sulphate requested; and

The production of these samples is an important step to seeking long term relationships with the battery industry and key equity/debt participants
