July 23, 2018 11:37:19

Cobalt exploration and development company First Cobalt’s (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) drilling program in Idaho is exploring a promising mineral strike for important tech-friendly metal. An article discussing the company reads: “First Cobalt has been focusing its recent exploration efforts on a mineralized strike in Idaho’s prolific Cobalt Belt that could have national security implications as well as an impact on the production of in-demand modern tech items ranging from smartphones to electric vehicles. … Discovering and developing North American cobalt supply sources has already been a priority among some mining companies, as concerns over changing tax laws and the human rights violations reported in the Democratic Republic of the Congo — the world’s largest producer of the metal on an incomparable scale ( — have spawned efforts to create a conflict-free supply chain. The United States government’s concerns about losing significant entrepreneurial innovations to foreign investors as they seek to boost their own competitiveness is adding fuel to the fire.”
