Celsius Begins Drilling at Opuwo Cobalt Project
Past metallurgical test work carried out on Opuwo focused on producing a concentrate via flotation and then recovering the cobalt via either autoclave leaching or concentrate roasting. With a better understanding of the ore mineralogy, opportunities have arisen for enhancing the commercial viability of Opuwo through application of tailored metallurgical processes.
“The Opuwo Project has the potential to be a world-class source of future cobalt supply,” Celsius MD Robert Gregory said. “The conclusion of the drill program to generate ore samples for the commencement of the metallurgical testing and development work programs is an important step in establishing the feasibility of the Opuwo project. Of note, the identified processing options encompass both low cost and reduced environmental footprint.”
