Corazon Mining Limited (ASX: CZN) is an Australia-based company exploring and developing the Lynn Lake Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Sulphide Project in Manitoba, Canada, and the Mt Gilmore Cobalt-Copper-Gold Project in N.S.W., Australia. Both are recognised as quality projects with the potential to supply strategic metals to what is forecast to be a major growth sector – the rechargeable battery industry.
