China lacks of cobalt ore resources, with the total proven reserves of cobalt approximating 80,000 tons, accounting for just 1% of global total, and the vast majority of proven resources are associated ore, whereas independent mineralized cobalt ore occupies only 4.7 % of the reserves in China. Known cobalt ores in China are mainly distributed in Gansu province which makes up 30.5% of China's cobalt reserves. China is a big consumer of cobalt, which is primarily utilized in downstream sectors to produce battery, hard alloy, magnetic materials and other products. In 2012, cobalt used in batteries takes up 67% of total consumption of cobalt in China, up 4 percentage points from a year earlier.
