Pacific Rim Cobalt – Cyclops Project Area:
Depapre District, Jayapura Regency, Papua Province, Republic of Indonesia

  • Uniquely positioned in a region with potentially the largest source of cobalt outside of Africa
  • Strategically located near China, the world’s largest cobalt buyer
  • Laterite (iron-hosted) mineral resource, rich in cobalt and nickel

Indonesia Nickel-Cobalt Potential

  • Highly prospective geology and tropical environment results in numerous commercially suitable high-grade nickel-cobalt-bearing laterite deposits.
  • Produced 32% of the world’s nickel as laterite ore in 2013.
  • High Quality: 40% of the global total resources of high-grade lateritic ore (>1.8%).
  • Indonesia production focused on high grade nickel in saprolite for pyro-metallurgical processing.
  • Cobalt resources not yet exploited in the limonite zone which offers alternate processing opportunities.
