440,000 pounds Cobalt Historical Production

Canada Cobalt Works Inc.

Canada Cobalt Works Inc. (formerly Castle Silver Resources) is a growing cobalt focused Company with past producing Canadian cobalt/silver mines under exploration. The Company also owns a proprietary environmentally friendly metal separation technology for efficient cobalt extraction that was used in 2018 to produce a cobalt sulphate compound suitable for end use in battery production. The material used to produce the compound was taken directly from the first level adit at the historic Castle Silver Mine site. The Company continues to advance on several fronts with cobalt demand forecast to increase due to greater supply needs for battery producers to meet rising global demand for electric vehicles.
