Cobalt One shareholders approve merger with First Cobalt

JOHANNESBURG ( – Junior cobalt miner Cobalt One’s shareholders have approved a merger with Toronto-based First Cobalt, which means that the companies are one step closer to creating the largest pure-play cobalt company in the world.

Cobalt One announced on Monday that 99.995% of the shareholders’ votes were in favour of the merger.

Meanwhile, Australian court approval for the merger has been granted and trading of Cobalt One shares on the ASX was due to come to a halt on Tuesday, pending the close of the transaction.
