Cobalt in the Zambian Copperbelt - ScienceDirect

1984-8-1  This paper represents an analysis of the distribution of cobalt in the Zambian Copperbelt and the sig- nificance of this, and its mineralogy, in terms of the genesis of the stratiform copper--cobalt ores. COPPER--COBALT--NICKEL RATIOS The metal reserves quoted above for Zambia would indicate an overall Cu:Co ratio of 62.5:1.
