Akash Patel, CEO of Cameo Cobalt stated: “The Company is ecstatic to announce the expansion of its Chilean land package. Cameo Cobalt now has a material presence in two of the three historic Chilean cobalt production regions. This acquisition signals to the marketplace Cameo Cobalt’s commitment to cobalt exploration in the Southern hemisphere.
