Joel Crane, the company’s commercial manager, recently provided insights into the project’s progress, indicating that it remains on schedule for a Q3 2024 construction decision.

Among the key milestones achieved, Cobalt Blue has processed large-scale feedstock samples and engaged with potential offtake partners to evaluate the produced sulphate samples. This hands-on approach not only demonstrates the company’s commitment to the project but also highlights its readiness to cater to the market’s needs.

Furthermore, Cobalt Blue has initiated detailed engineering design for the proposed plant in Kwinana, Western Australia, and is on track for mid-2024 permitting submissions.
