One of the companies making that kind of investment is Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (OTCQB: PCRCF) (CSE: BOLT), which has been actively involved in a drilling project located on the northern shore of Indonesia, near China, which boasts the world’s largest electric vehicle battery market. This week the company announced results from eight of the first 15 holes drilled in the Yapase area of the Cyclops Project. The drilling confirmed the development of a complete mineralized laterite profile and is starting to confirm grades and widths that form the basis of the project’s historical estimate.

Pacific Rim began a 50-hole core drilling program in mid-January on areas of laterite delineated by a geological mapping and a hand-augur geochemistry program. A total of 15 holes have been completed, covering a total of 255 meters, with hole depths ranging from 13 to 29 meters. Where possible, holes were drilled to fresh rock in order to intersect the full laterite profile.
