Cobalt is an ever-growing, necessary component to support modern technology and facilitate a future carbon-reduced society. The global supply of cobalt is currently at risk due to increased demand from few known supplies, therefore making the prospection for new primary sources of cobalt a priority. The English Lake District offers opportunity to study multiple deposit styles that bear ‘energy-critical elements’ like cobalt. Mineralisation of ore here is spread across a range of different geological settings, providing a prime target to conduct investigations into how cobalt-bearing mineralogy varies across the region. By building genetic models for these ore deposits, we can develop a better understanding for how they could form globally on a more economic scale, fostering greater efficiency to future cobalt prospection.
