The Cobalt Mountain project area is located approximately 14 km south of Hazelton in northwest British Columbia in the Rocher Deboulé mountain range. Mining and mineral exploration activities have been intermittent in the area for over a century and focused on various commodities including gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, cobalt, tungsten and uranium.
Past producing underground mines in the area operated in the early and mid – 1900’s and focused on polymetallic quartz veins hosted near the margins of the Rocher Deboulé stock. Vein hosted deposits remain prospective but are generally low tonnage and difficult to market. The proximal nature of the veins around the stock suggests the stock itself may be the main metallogenic driver to precious and base metal mineralization.
