Jervois mining is focused on becoming a global supplier of battery metals and is a leading cobalt company with significant nickel and copper exposure. As part of its global strategy, the Company has secured geographic and asset diversification by combining the development-stage Idaho Cobalt Operations (“ICO”) and Nico Young project in Idaho and Australia respectively with a large package of prospective exploration tenements in Uganda and a strategic base in East Africa. ICO has had US$100m invested to date and is a partially built mine and when it moves into production (currently scheduled for H2 2021) it will be the only producing cobalt mine in the US making it highly strategic. It has the largest compliant resource in the US and is amongst the highest average grade cobalt projects globally.View Initiation Report View JRV Note
