— Michael R. Holloman, CEO

What makes our company unique?

Safety First
That is our number one priority. We are intent on being the safest work environment in the world.

Environmental Stewardship
Our background at Missouri Cobalt is in the Environmental Clean Up space and we intend to make sure we take good care of the land while we are here and that we leave it better than it was when we’re done.

Missouri Cobalt has the largest near term primary cobalt reserve in North America and we intend to leverage the great working men and women of the State of Missouri to help us power a cleaner future.

Skilled Workforce
Our highly skilled and experienced workforce is a game-changer compared to the workforce in the remote areas that most cobalt comes from. These great workers are the backbone of America and we are proud to have them here at Missouri Cobalt.

Driving the Future
The market for battery materials is fascinating, we are at the convergence of a revolution in two major industries, Energy and Automotive. Electric Batteries are fueling this revolution and the demand for Cobalt/Nickel and Copper are critical to the effort. Global demand for Cobalt in batteries is expected to rise threefold by 2025 and we intend to be at the forefront of the industry, providing local jobs and revenues for this great state and this great country

Missouri Cobalt, LLC was formed by J. Randall Waterfield, CEO of Waterfield Holdings and Stacy W. Hastie, CEO of Environmental Operations, Inc., in response to tremendous momentum in the high-performance battery market, driven by electric vehicle makers Tesla, BMW, Volkswagen, Panasonic and other industry leaders. These high-performance batteries require significant cobalt resources. The annual demand for cobalt reached $8 billion in 2017.
