The name Coniagas spells out the key products according to symbols of periodic table: Cobalt, Nickel, Silver, and Arsenic. Over a century ago, a handful of prospects in the back country of Canada grew into a vertically integrated producer of specialized metal products. Once again demand for critical metals has gripped the world and the name Coniagas is a return to form.
We are regional veterans who understand both the local geology and the imperative of the energy transition. It's a combination of world class deposits with a capable team with the expertise to bring mines into production.
